The generic answer, for a random user somewhere in the UK, using mass-market products, is that NO - 50Mbps upload isn't available - 20Mbps is the top for anything commonly available. Availability subject to location, and speed subject to distance from cab.

50Mbps+ is available only from small niche players, in select locations, as you noticed. Or from products that aren't mass-market, and don't have mass-market prices.

The name of a town or city will help people point out what is available or coming soon.

As per other posters the only options likely in the near future are leased lines - almost universally available but expensive.

There are so few market uses for that sort of upload speed that it isn't likely to be a product quickly - if there is a large takeup of FTTPoD and a push from users for higher upload then it may happen - probably at least 5 years though.

Could get a FTTC solution and bond two or more lines to give the required upload speed
