AT&T Says "It's Not Our Fault" Regarding Slow Upload Speeds

"As we'd suspected, AT&T isn't intentionally limiting upload speeds on iPhone 4s in some markets where things suddenly got slow over the weekend. Or that's the company's claim, anyhow -- and seeing how they're actually calling out a supplier in the process, we tend to buy it."

They posted some info on their facebook page as well, basically saying that it was caused Alcatel-Lucent equipment and only affected about 2% of their customer base, or as the press release says "...those using Laptop Connect and smartphone customers using 3G HSUPA-capable wireless devices in markets with Alcatel-Lucent equipment."

iPhone 3GS Will Download Really Fast, Upload Much Slower

"Macworld is reporting that while the iPhone 3GS chipset does indeed support the new (for North America!) HSPDA download speed of 7.2 Mbps, Apple didn't see fit to equip it with the matching HSUPA upload speed of 1.4/1.9 Mbps. Indeed, they claim the iPhone 3GS will top out its uploads (sending videos to YouTube, emailing photos, etc.) at a comparatively anemic 384 Kbps."

I find it hard to get worked up over upload speeds. The download speeds I get are pretty solid and considering I spend a gigantic majority of my time downloading and not uploading, I'm perfectly happy. There are times when I've wanted a bit more oomph in my uploads (namely when sending vids to YouTube) but it's not something I absolutely must have to survive. Basically, it would be a nice luxury, but nowhere near a necessity.

You guys?
