HTC prepping software update to enable HSUPA on the Inspire 4G

AT&T has gotten quite a bit of bad press over the past month since their new HTC Inspire 4G doesn’t really support 4G speeds.  As you may know, AT&T chose to launch the Inspire 4G without support for HSUPA out of the box, leading to upload speeds that barely make it over the 500 kbps threshold.  While we all breathed a sigh of relief when AT&T announced they would enable HSUPA on some of their devices, today is the first time we have seen any progress on the situation. 

An FCC Class II Permissive Change document for the HTC Inspire 4G has just been uncovered which states that the “HTC Corporation will enable HSUPA function of this product, Smartphone (FCC ID: NM8PD98120), by software.”  There is no indication as to when the software update will be hitting the HTC Inspire 4G, but we’re hoping that once HSUPA is enabled on the device, the HTC Inspire 4G will finally be able to live up to its name.
