i would just like to point out that in 2022, there is literally no technical justification for asymmetric internet connectivity: docsis 3.1 and later can support multi-gigabit symmetric connections, as can PON networks.

no, DSL does not count as justification in 2022.


@ariadne the justification is this huge sack of cash from a few megacorporations

@ariadne datacenters and artificial asymmetric connections are landlording and digital enclosure :)
