AT&T Begins Rolling Out 3G Upload Speed Fix

AT&T has begun rolling out a software fix to fix an issue in Alcatel-Lucent equipment that was causing users in some parts of the country to experience slower uploads. The company said it hoped the problem could be resolved in 2-3 weeks.

Although iPhone users were the most vocal when the issue first appeared, it wasn't device specific. After investigation, AT&T determined the issue had to do with firmware in Alcatel-Lucent's 3G base station hardware.

 AT&T said the issue affected less than two percent of their customer base. Using their recently provided wireless subscriber number of 90.1 million, that would be about 1.8 million subscribers, all of whom are probably ticked off at the beleaguered carrier, regardless of whether or not its AT&T's issue, or Alcatel-Lucent's.

I would say on a 1.8 million scale that's a lot of people :D. But according to their scale its only a little issues? :D Well, it hasn't affected me, but wish they can speed up my connection... :)

lol... I love when companies roll out percentages instead of an actual head count... they do that because they know the number will be staggering... like 1,800,000. lol

When you put it into a percentage, it doesn't sound so bad lol

But hey... at least they're fixing it. :-P

lol they released in a seperate statement, the head count. With only the percentage, you would have to do your own homework to find out the head count lol
