You upload speed will be determined by your service type and internet speed tier....

I suspect your ADSL2+ which has a max upload of 1

Access your gateway and check your stats page...

post max rate both down and up, user rate down and up and protocol.

If protocol is ADSL2+ or ANNEX A your at the max upload available for the service. 

IF protocol is 8d or 17a these are VDSL FTTN where max upload can vary based upon best speed tier available and if you are subscribed to that speed tier. For VDSL speed tiers are 100/20, 75/20, 50/10, 25/5 and 25/2 with no longer offered but have grandfathered 18/1.5


for list of ISPs in your zip code...
