What does “superfast” broadband mean?

BDUK has defined Superfast Broadband as having a potential headline access speed of at least 20Mbps, with no upper limit. The communications regulator, Ofcom, says “Superfast broadband is generally taken to mean broadband products that provide a maximum download speed that is greater than 24Mbps”. It surprises us that no-one seems to think the upload speed important enough to include in these definitions, when for many applications, and especially businesses, it is the current upload speed limits which are causing the most problems.
