Bell’s Motorola ATRIX Has HSUPA Disabled, Too

AT&T cust0mers were furious to learn that their Motorola Atrix 4G was crippled with limited upload speeds thank to the lack of HSUPA support in the software. Thankfully, Ma Bell has confirmed that future software upgrades will get rid of this limitation. Those folks aren’t the only ones whose ATRIX was limited, though. The newly-launched Motorola Atrix for Bell in Canada also has the limitation according to XDA. Speeds were confirmed to be limited to 400kbps. Bell hasn’t said anything on whether or not this a hardware limitation, but we’re assuming otherwise. If it isn’t, we’ll be waiting for word from Bell to see if they’ll ever be lifting the cap in the future. [via Engadget]

    Without HSUPA, upload should be limited to 384 kbps. This is the maximum theorical speed. In practice, it should be less. So if you get 400 kbps, HSUPA works.

    Every single carrier bottle necks upload speeds not just att.

  • OMG Ponies!

    Wow… where’s your proof? Telus Galaxy S & HTC Desire HD, upload 2.5mbps average. Maybe I’m just special.

    lol had fun speaking with a bell employee about this, yea its bull but its still fast enough for now, unless i need a friggen 20 meg video uploaded in under a minute then its not really heartbreaking. just silly that something as top of the line isnt performing to its maximum.

    This is ANOTHER AT&T gift to avoid customer use VoIP and VideoIP over his network.
