Having just signed up with PIPEX and to issued with an Alcatel 330 USB modem. I was wondering if the broadband speed of 2mb would still be reachable using USB 1.1. Or would it be betyter to get a USB 2.0 card.
My sister is on Tiscali 2mb broadband and when she is online it reads connected at 2.3mbps. Uses a sagem something or other usb mobem that tiscali sent to her. Can't be right can it??? It is bloody quick though.
I know that USB 1.1 runs at a speed of 12 mb so I assume that the maximum broadband speed this can cope with is 12 mb so it will easily handle 2 mb.
I also know that USB 2.0 is capable of a much faster speed of 480 mb so I guess this is a bit of overkill as these types of speeds are usually used by hard drives to transfer large amounts of data quickly.
