I would like to blame the idiots that decided that of the signal range to be used on copper for dsl, only a certain amount would be dedicated to upload instead of negotiating. What on earth do I want to do with 24Mb down and 1Mb up? Can't I have 12 and 12? Someone please tell me there's a valid reason why the download range couldn't be variable and negotiated and that's it's completely impossible for one to have 20Mb up and 1.5 Mb down.
As cable was mentioned in earlier posts.. There are also (proprietary) solutions leveraging cable for symmetric 10/10 or 100/100 Mbit/s.
One example I'm aware of is Teleste's ETTH technology: http://www.teleste.fi/index.phtml?page_id=1114&navi_id=1114
