[ALL] Upload Speeds on Basic Internet Packages

I'm referring specifically to HS10 and HS20 here ... these packages still have just 512 Kbps upload speeds. Not a real complaint, just curious what it will take for Shaw to get with the times? I currently have HS20 and I chose that because of the 6 month introductory pricing when I signed up -- currently only paying $29.95 plus taxes. However, that promo pricing will very soon end for me. For the difference in full pricing $60 for HS25 vs $55 for HS20 I'll probably upgrade when the promo runs out so that I can get the "upto 2.5 Mbps" upload speeds. But really? How hard would it be (and how much would it cost) for Shaw to provide 1.0 Mbps for HS10 and 2.0 Mbps upload for HS20? I keep reading about other ISPs (both American and Canadian) here at DSL Reports and many (if not most) seem to now offer at least 2.0 Mbps upload even with their basic packages. Heck, here in Winnipeg, even MTS offers 768 Kbps with their basic package (which is only 7.0 Mbps down). It's not a deal-breaker for me, but I do e-mail a lot of larger PDF files to my clients, I do a lot of sales on Kijiji and eBay - uploading lots of photos. And I do a bit of torrenting as well. I don't think asking for 2 Mbps upload is a lot to ask - but I'm sure I would notice (and appreciate) a quadrupling of my current upload speeds. * Edited for typos
