AT&T upload throttling frustrates iPhone 4 owners - SlashGear

Speculation among iPhone 4 owners has suggested that carrier AT&T have begun capping 3G upload speeds, with some users reporting a tenfold reduction in rates. The company has made no official statement as yet, but in certain areas where previously speeds in excess of 1Mbps were being recorded, now sub-100kbps rates are more likely. It’s unclear whether solely iPhone 4 owners are being affected, or if all AT&T devices are seeing the same throttling.

Gizmodo points to the MacRumors forums where members have been compiling a list of affected areas. So far, 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 have all been tagged as problematic for upload speeds

Man vzw better not go down that route. ATT is just begging for people to switch. What is the purpose of the 1ghz iphone if att is slowing down speeds on an already horrible 3g network.
