I use CUsm on a 660av with a 14.4k modem, and I can get a pretty good
transfer rate, maybe about 20 fps if I'm lucky, I don't really have much to
complain about. My school had a T1 line and I think I'm going to see if
they will let me use CUsm there. Then I will probably think my frame rate
is slow.
