I haven't a clue. The rural phone lines around here are pretty much
terrible and I had to choke the modem down in the init string for
anything to happen, including the login. It's that OR a bunch of old
tired non-USRobotic friendly modems at the ISP with crap for
compression. The modems you're talking about should sell like hot-cakes
over here! 

I'm still waiting on our Non-Profit to come up with my Satellite
package, but getting money OUT of a Non-Profit is like squeezing raisins
to get juice. ;) It takes a LOT of squeezing, as well as patience.
