    Default AT&T Will Speed Up Your Uploads... Slowly


    AT&T announced today that they would start rolling out a patch for the upload speed problems that have been plaguing numerous iPhone 4 users throughout the US. AT&T identified the issue as a software bug in equipment used in certain areas of their network, and released a workaround to improve speeds while the patch to fix the bug was being developed. A spokesman for the carrier said today that the patch would be phased in over the next two to three weeks.

    Around the July 4th holiday, new iPhone 4 owners noticed that their uploads - which had in some cases increased by as much as 10 times over iPhone 3G/S speeds - suddenly crashed. Reports of upload throughput below 100 kb/s were common, and some users suspected AT&T was capping their uploads to save its network. However, the carrier insisted that it was not doing traffic limiting, and said that Alcatel-Lucent equipment had a bug that crippled devices running the High-Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) protocol. On AT&T's network, the only HSUPA devices are the iPhone 4 and some of the cards used with the carrier's LaptopConnect service.

    AT&T released a workaround to the Alcatel-Lucent bug that allowed 3G uploads up to 384 kb/s, better than the 100 kb/s some were experiencing but still much less the 1.5 to 2 Mb/s many users had gotten before the bug. "The patch will be deployed on a phased basis over the next two to three weeks," according to AT&T spokesman Mark Siegel. The Reuters article on the AT&T announcement promises "a potential maximum of 5.67 gigabits per second" after the patch is applied; we're pretty sure they meant "megabits."

    And I'd love to see tmobile even attempt to take on at&ts iPhone users. They couldn't handle it.

    Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, Rogers, Boost, All-Tel ... pretty much everyone at one time or another.

    Lol remember the T-Mobile crash that took them down nationwide for a few hours last year? Happened to be the same day that Geohot released the unlock.

    I'm around 3.3 Mbps download and 1.8 upload. In Texas 50 or so miles from Austin server. Dallas is a bit slower and H-Town seems to crawl. Must be the distance?!? The upload is much faster now.

    Also since my i4 is unlocked I tested tmobile and I'm at 120kbps upload and a whole .85mbps download with 4 bars to the same server.
