I am tempted to buy a V.92 modem for faster connection and upload speeds, though the "modem on hold" facility is not available yet.(Yes I know it is on 1stnet, but have you seen their prices?) Watford has one for under £17 but it says it is only V44 prepared, whatever that means. PCWorld have a ZOOM 3025 at under £30, which seems the favourite so far. Any thoughts?

Thanks, I know what v.44 is, don't know what "v44 prepared" means! Has it got it or not? I'm prepared for a V.92 modem but I haven't got one. Perhaps it's like bracing yourself...

presumable software required to enable the V44 option ,and it may not be ready yet hence the Ready bit..

The ZOOM at PCW is £39.99.

that to be effective. your ISP has to support V92

graham, if I remember correctly, aren't you with aol, if so the and V92 don't get on too well together. J.

I installed a Zoom V92 PCI modem when my V90 was struck by lightning ! , because my ISP does'nt support V92 I have only noticed a slight improvement in download speeds.
