Is AT&T capping upload speeds on 4G phones?

Comparing the new Motorola handset, users can see by using apps like SpeedTest that the Atrix 4G is not only uploading data slower than the iPhone on the same network (to the tune of 4-10 times slower) but is also dropping calls more often (a shock considering the iPhone 4's penchant at reception issues). Users of both phones pay the same cost in data rates, but the Atrix 4G is being clocked by users at uploading no faster than 300 kpbs. Does the evidence show that AT&T is capping upload speeds?
