AT&T capping iPhone upload speeds? According to Gizmodo and other sites, AT&T has begun capping upload speeds on the Apple iPhone 4, containing the speeds to as low as 100kbps in metropolitan areas like New York City.
When the phone launched, users were reporting upload speeds as high as 1500kbps.

A few of the other reported affected areas are: "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."

Users in other regions have reported fast upload speeds, so the situation appears to be isolated to certain places.

AT&T has not responded but most speculate the drop in speeds are related to maintenance to the HSUPA network.
