Boy, there sure have been a lot of bizarre glitches lately. Yesterday we reported that AT&T appeared to be crippling upload speeds for many of their customers. Today, BGR reports that AT&T has released an official statement on the matter;

"AT&T and Alcatel-Lucent jointly identified a software defect — triggered under certain conditions – that impacted uplink performance for Laptop Connect and smartphone customers using 3G HSUPA-capable wireless devices in markets with Alcatel-Lucent equipment. This impacts less than two percent of our wireless customer base. While Alcatel-Lucent develops the appropriate software fix, we are providing normal 3G uplink speeds and consistent performance for affected customers with HSUPA-capable devices."

That's certainly a lot better than some mystery cap, but it doesn't exactly inspire confidence either. Affected subscribers, have you noticed any improvement?
