Has AT&T fixed HSUPA upload speeds in your area?

A bunch of readers are telling us AT&T and Alcatel Lucent have fixed the issues with HSUPA (high speed uploads) and their iPhone 4's a positively racing up the information superhighway again. Not everyone in every place seems so lucky, however, as our good friend @TCPJ_Mickey, still seems to be chugging along sub-100 in Arizona.

You know what this means, right? Speed test!

We use speedtest.net's app [iTunes link] but whatever your choice of measure, post where you are and what your upload speeds look like today and we'll see if we can figure out if AT&T really is giving more Mbps in more places.
