Maybe check with someone that backed it up? I'm sorry, I didn't back mine up.

Yeah I inserted my T-Mobile sim and the download speeds great 25Mps+. Reinserted my ATT Sim and the speeds dropped . Looks like T-Mobile has trottled the ATT Sim with the new modem. We have to get the old modem/firmware back for ATT users.

Why would they do this? Could it just be a service issue?

I don't know except that I was getting great download speeds before the change.
I saw your comment on the other forum regarding extracting the Modem. Can this be done and can we get the ANCH modem out to flash?

Heard comments from T-Mobile users that they have also experienced dramatically lower download speeds.

I want to confirm that I also got drastic speed reductions after the update. I'm on stock nonrooted with a T-Mobile Sim.
