Following up on the recent frenzy of news since iPhone 4 users began reporting crippled upload speeds on AT&T’s 3G network at the start of the holiday weekend, AT&T and component supplied Alcatel-Lucent jointly identified a software defect that’s apparently triggered under certain conditions.
Per MacRumors, the following joint statement has been released:
“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.”
There is no word on a timeframe for deployment of the software fix for Alcatel-Lucent’s equipment.
