Atrix and Inspire Update Coming as AT&T Admit Clipping 4G Speed
If you are an owner of the Motorola Atrix 4G and HTC inspire 4G smartphones on the AT&T network and have been experiencing appalling upload speeds with your device the reason is AT&T has slowed down their 4G network.
According to an article over on Arstechnica, AT&T has admitted they have slowed down 4G due to the release of the HTC Inspire 4G and Motorola Atrix 4G handsets, although after numerous complaints to the Better Business Bureau, AT&T will roll out an update to the handsets to fix the issue sometime in April.
Apparently customers have found that 4G upload speeds on AT&T have been no faster than 300 kbps and according to Dsl Reports, the carrier at first skirted the problem by saying that the HTC Inspire 4G can’t use 4G; however, they now claim they are still carrying out “testing and preparations.”
The word is AT&T will release a software patch sometime in April to the HTC Inspire 4G and Motorola Atrix 4G that should fix the problem and allow access to AT&T’s HSUPA network.
So have any of our readers with the Motorola Atrix 4G or HTC Inspire 4G been suffering with the slow upload speeds, if so feel free to shout out and vent in our comments area below.
