Reports are coming in that iPhone 4 customers are experiencing a very significant drop in their upload speeds. Gizmodo is reporting that the maximum upload speed is currently 100kbps, nearly 1/10th of the average.
Adding to the list of problems with Apple’s new iPhone 4, as well as AT&T’s network, users are seeing a drop in upload speeds from nearly 1500kbps to just 100kbps. The following is a list of areas affected so far.
NYC, Central Jersey, Orlando, Seattle, South Jersey/Philly, Columbus, Cleveland, West Houston, Phoenix, Northern Colorado, St. Paul/Minnesota, Suffolk County/Long Island, Quad Cities, South Jersey, Denver, Detroit Metro, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas, Kansas City, Fairfax, Minneapolis, Washington D.C., Des Moines!
MacRumors member Milan03, who is reporting a decrease in upload speed, speculates that AT&T was not prepared for the amount of bandwidth the iPhone 4 would consume. It is possible that users are sharing more images and video which is stressing the AT&T network.
Currently, AT&T has yet to comment on the matter, but Gizmodo claims that an official statement is expected soon.
