Not sure. Keep in mind upload is a function of your little dish and tria. To increase upload speeds substantially would take more power to transmit I would guess. Not sure you will see much change.

Upload speeds mean a lot more today than they did a decade ago.

In fact, going back TWO decades, satellite internet was one way. Upload was via dial-up. Download was via satellite. Granted, the internet was a little different back then, but it actually worked great!
