Does AT&T Throttle Access to CrashPlan?

I have been noticing for a while now that upload speed to my cloud backup provider have been very slow.  I have been seeing 5-10 KB/sec upload speeds to CrashPlan (per Mac Activity Monitor), while I get much higher speeds uploading to many other sites.


On a whim I tried installing and activating a VPN.  Now I am seeing upload speeds of 200-400 KB/sec when using the VPN - again reported by Mac Activity Monitor.  The CrashPlan app reports similar findings.


Is direct traffic to CrashPlan's servers being throttled by AT&T?

Have you did a AT&T speedtest, if not could you do so in provide us with the results?
