Not too long ago, we reported about AT&T throttling the upload speeds of their 4G devices. Some investigation has been done, and AT&T has come clean about the situation. Apparently the carrier wasn’t “throttling” the upload speeds of their 4G devices, but they just haven’t enabled the HSUPA (the feature that allows users to upload at 4G speeds) capabilities of their 4G phones yet. AT&T has issued a statement saying that they are currently performing tests and preparations so that when they enable HSUPA, “you will continue to have a world class experience.” I guess that clears the air about things. Now all that’s left to wish for is a confirmation date of when that will be.
