AT&T may be at it again. Users across the country have started to report cratering upload speeds in areas that once had steady, solid signal. In some areas, upload speeds have capped at around 100 Kbps. BGR reports that their upload speeds in New York City seem limited to around 50 Kbps.

The MacRumors forums are filled with complaining iPhone owners who have noticed the throttled upload speeds. They report that these cities appear to be affected;

"NYC, Central Jersey, Boston, Orlando, Seattle, South Jersey/Philly, Columbus, Cleveland, West Houston, Phoenix, Northern Colorado, St. Paul/Minesota, 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!"

AT&T has made no official comment as of yet. If you've noticed a recent change in your upload speeds, drop us a line and let us know.
