Word on the street has it that mobile carrier AT&T could very well be capping upload data speeds, with several cities such as New York maxing out at 100kbps, which is 10% of what other places get. This appears to be a regional ‘problem’, and some of the locations affected since the weekend include NYC, Central Jersey, Boston, Orlando, Seattle, South Jersey/Philly, Columbus, Cleveland, West Houston, Phoenix, Northern Colorado, St. Paul/Minesota, Suffolk County/Long Island, Quad Cities, South Jersey, Denver, Detroit Metro, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Kansas City, Fairfax and Minneapolis. Of course, it could very well be due to an outage or maintenance work that is related to HSUPA in the mentioned areas, but hopefully no data capping is being practised here. AT&T is tipped to comment on the situation in due time.
