I believe that CUSEEME may use different ports that AOL's so called
internet access doesn't support.

Or the limiting factor could be one's CPU - a PC can only handle so much
bandwith. MAybe a PPC can do 28.8 through put, but as for a plain old
68040 chip, don't count on it.

Leslie Mcclure (sp?) says :

But I don't think this applies to conventional phone calls, does it? Every
phone line can do 28.8, theoretically, as long as the loop isn't to long?
what is a loop anyway, how does it work?
