3G Upload Speeds Uncapped W/O update?
It seems that my 3g upload speeds have been uncapped. Like everyone else, I was unable to achieve upload speeds greater than 150 kbps during speed test. This morning I have consistently been able to achieve speeds in the 300-400 kbps range for uploads and I have not received an update. Anyone else seeing this?
Btw, I'm in NYC with a rooted Epic.

Unrooted Epic - no obvious "update" yet, last test had 600kbps or so. Haven't checked since last power cycle though.

Yea they were right next to each other. I ran the test about 5 times. I checked the phone settings and we both have the DI07 baseband version. The only difference is my Build number is different, showing the rooted ROM/Kernel. I also notice whenever I run a speedtest and have music playing in the background, when it gets to the upload portion of the test the audio gets very choppy. I'll have to check hers and see if its the same with choppy audio.
I also tried QIK again with her on 3g and mine on wifi and it seemed much smoother.
She was getting 150Kbps max upload previously about a week ago.

I'm not rooted and still have the cap.
I wonder if it was a sprint network problem, and they're trying to fix it right along side the firmware update to make us all think that the firmware solved the problem, trying to hide the fact that it was a sprint screw-up. Just a theory.
