AT&T Confirms Atrix 4G Uploads Are Slow ... For Now

AT&T has confirmed what owners of the Motorola Atrix 4G have known since buying their device: It isn't yet capable of speedy uploads. In response to user complaints, press inquiries, and a Better Business Bureau investigation, AT&T has issued the following statement, "Be assured that AT&T has not 'capped' the upload speeds on the Atrix. The Atrix is a HSUPA-capable device, and we currently are performing the testing and preparations necessary to ensure that, when we turn this feature on, you will continue to have a world class experience." In other words, the device has an HSUPA radio inside, but it isn't yet on. AT&T did not make mention of this issue before marketing it and selling it as a 4G device. In Phone Scoop's tests of the Atrix, we were never able to achieve an upload speed greater than 200Kbps. AT&T didn't indicate when the Atrix's HSUPA radio would be enabled.
