Motorola on Tuesday finally announced that the HSUPA-enabling ATRIX 4G update thousands of users have been clamoring for has finally begun rolling out to devices. Software update v4.1.83 for the ATRIX 4G includes several updates that Motorola claims will improve device performance — none of those improvements will have quite the dramatic impact that enabling HSUPA will, of course. AT&T had disabled HSUPA when the ATRIX 4G was first released, and countless of users gathered on forums to complain of the slow upload speeds they were experiencing on their “4G” devices. Thousands of angry ATRIX owners even signed a petition to voice their disdain. AT&T finally responded and told users a future update would enable HSUPA, and now that update is finally available. Motorola has issued the OTA update and users should receive a notification once it is queued up for their devices. Impatient ATRIX owners can also initiate the update manually from within the device settings.
