    ATRIX 4G and Inspire 4G users given hope following complaints of capped data speeds



    Some Motorola ATRIX 4G and HTC Inspire 4G owners on the AT&T network have been up in arms since purchasing their new 4G handsets. Despite the presence of “4G” in each moniker, users are experiencing slower than expected upload speeds on the devices. Some users like Zack Nebbaki have been so upset by the slow upload speeds, they’ve gone as far as to create a petition to voice their discontent. While we wish we had something more concrete to report, we just received the following comment from an AT&T spokesperson that may help put some minds at ease: “We have a number of HSUPA devices today and we will have more HSUPA-enabled devices in the future — new devices and updates to existing models.” The statement does not specifically refer to the ATRIX or Inspire so nothing is confirmed, but the mention of “updates to existing models” should at least give users hope that their 4G phones might be updated in the future.

    I was actually going to run a post on this subject. I'd done some reading a while back (and I wish I had the thread as reference for links I posted) about how we are being throttled. I mean even the iPhone 4G which isn't HSPA+ (I believe) is getting better speeds than us. Now if we're the the most advanced phone on our network as far as network speeds are concerned, shouldn't it be showing in our speeds? Well it's not. And it's because they are throttling us. So... I'm all down to sign a petition and complain to AT&T until they do something.

    I think you'd be the only person owning an Atrix to be getting those kind of upload speeds.

    PS. You should totally post pics of your WRX on the off topic forum "what car do you drive", I'd love to see it

    I would like to see that as well.. I'm confused as to how you are getting speeds no one else is capable of.. I mean there are at least a thousand people signing this petition alone that are having this issue.. Not to mention all the people that don't know what network speeds are or how to even check.
