Current async up/down setup provided by most last-mile internet providers is poorly suited to support a work-from-home workforce. A 10 mbps up/100 mbps down package can work for a single person, but for a family where multiple people may need to be on a video call this will be a miserable experience for all involved.

If we are going to insist that people continue to work from home, we need to lobby internet providers to provide support for burstable upload speeds during business hours.

@monsieuricon You'll probably have more luck lobbying against compulsory video calls. I don't recall ever having had a business conversation that would have benefited from video.
