AT&T Upload Speed Fix Incoming

AT&T [T] is in the process of deploying a patch that will fix the problem of slow upload speeds on the iPhone 4 and laptop modems. A glitch occurred on the AT&T network a few weeks back that prevented HSUPA speeds from being achieved. AT&T has limited users to UMTS speeds although when the patch rolls out, the restriction will be removed.

According to Yahoo!, the problem is only effecting 2 percent of it’s mobile user base. The fix is being applied to some network equipment from Alcatel and will be deployed over the next 2 to 3 weeks. If successful, faster upload speeds will be achievable.

The best way to check is download the speed test application from the iTunes store and over the next few weeks sometime, you should see the upload speeds being reported higher than if you test now.
