The download speed will always by significantly higher than the upload speed simply because 80 to 90 percent of all internet usage is download based.  Streaming of any kind, receiving email (most people get more than they send), viewing webpages and things of this nature.  The users who do have a higher upload requirement such as business' that require online backups and things like that can get a symmetrical service that has a matching or comparable upload and download speed, but they certainly pay for it.
