Yes, I know that with copper pair there are technical limitations to

fiber, which is what I have since very recently, doesn't have any
technical limitation. The limitation is arbitrary, or commercial.

Commercial / for marketing reasons. I think the asymmetric connections
on fibre are offered because consumers who move from xDSL will feel
more comfortable with an asymmetric spec. Silly, I know.

They assume that if I want symmetrical speed is because I want to
serve things.

Not an unreasonable assumption. Is there any other reason?
