100Mb Down 20Mb Up

I'm currently on 200Mb and thinking of dropping down to 100Mb. I notice that the upload speed drops to 10Mb when doing so. I was wondering if it's possible for Virgin to provide 20Mb upload on 100Mb plan or is it a technical limitation?

They don't do it and getting them to do something out of the ordinary would be like juggling soot in a gale.

I notice you are with BT what minimum download speed were you guaranteed? Their Fibre 2 package in my area is a minimum of 42Mb but the range is 50-71Mb quite a variation and I suppose that would be more or less the same with the other providers since they use Openreach.

Look at it this way your paying for upload not download say you pay for 20Mb upload and get 200Mb download so you can't pay 20Mb upload and get 100Mb download.
