Question about Compaq 56K Modem
You probably don't have to buy a new modem. The phone companies equipment will most likely be backward compatible. Meaning that there systems should work with V92. If you are in an area where you can get some kind of broadband it would make much more sence to arrange that. If you don't have broadband access you would probably not benefit much by buying a new modem. Unless of course the phone equipment for some reason is not backward compatable. The chance of that is slim. Voiceband modems will only support 53 kbps actual rates for downloads depending on conditions of the line and other factors. They are limited to this speed by the FCC in The United States and limited in Canada as well. hope this helps.
