    Basically most ISP will provide you with an upload speed of 25kb/s , regardless of your download speed be that 512k or these new cheap 2mb ones.

    To get anything that you aren't paying for is illegal as a general rule I would have said. Upload bandwidth capacity is more expensive for ISPs IIRC.

    Also becuase if they gave you lots of upload bandwith you could run your own webserver from home over the connection which they probably wouldn't want..
