*UPDATED How To Increase Upload Speed On AT&T Focus After NoDo Update

Posted by Richard Chao in "Samsung Windows Phones" @ 09:41 PM

"If you have experienced your upload speed being restricted on AT&T, which can occur after you've (finally) updated with official NoDo, there are some simple steps you can take to increase speed"

Owners of AT&T Samsung Focuses who have updated to NoDo are reporting that their upload speed are being throttled. Luckily, a workaround has already been discovered by the users at WPCentral. To apply the workaround, you have to open the diagnostics screen and tweak the settings.

From the number-dial screen:

1. Enter ##634# (Diagnostics screen should open)

2. Enter *#32489# (Test Mode screen should open)

3. Press back at the bottom (bottom right, not the phone's back button)

4. Press 5 for RRC (HSPA) control

5. Press 1 to view what yours is set at (It should be Release R5)

5.1. Press back at the bottom (bottom right, not the phone's back button)

6. Press 2 to change it.

7. Press 3 to change to Release 6 HSDPA/HSUPA

8. Press [end] to confirm.

*UPDATED TO ADD STEP 5.1

Figure 1: What is this, 1994 all over again?

Whenever bandwidth is discussed, there's always lots of finger pointing because there are so many variables, and players involved, that it's rarely a simple issue. My particular bandwidth bugaboo this morning? I was ticked off that Dropbox (referral) was only uploading at 10 KB/s. I left a 900 MB transfer running all night and it wasn't finished in the morning, and that's when I discovered the awful speed. My first instinct was to point a finger at Dropbox, thinking there was some sort of bandwidth throttling going on. I did a speed test with a tool my ISP provides (speedtest.shaw.ca) and was shocked to see 1.7 Mbps downloads and 107 kbps uploads (Figure 1). It's normally 20x that on downloads and 10x that on uploads, so I knew something was wrong beyond just Dropbox. Read more...
