Spirit Telecom - which provides fibre broadband to apartment blocks and student accommodation - has introduced a symmetric broadband service dubbed UFi.
The company claims this is the first time that symmetric broadband has been available to residential customers in Australia.
Spirit tested the symmetric service at College Square, Carlton (Melbourne).
"The result was a 61% increase in data uploads, compared to the same period in 2013 and our network didn't miss a beat".
The higher upload speeds are said to help activities such as videoconferencing, online gaming, and uploading large files to social media or cloud services such as backup.
Spirit's symmetric plans come with unlimited downloads and five speed options: 12, 25, 50, 100 and - since mid-2014 - 200Mbps.
Prices remain unchanged despite the improvement, and range from $56 a month for 15/15Mbps and 100GB to $99 for 100/100Mbps.
