I have a USR 28.8 with a 33.6 firmware (chip) upgrade. As far as *definitive*
answers go? That's not my department, but I can "swear" to the fact that my USR
WILL attain speeds up to 28.8! ...And my ISP also has 28.8 modems (no 33.6's)!
Now with CU-SeeMe, I would leave your min/max transmits/receives at 10 & 28,
respectively! You still are not on a *pure* internet connection. If you were
to go ISDN? I'ld say differently!

Hope this justifies your purchasing a 33.6 vs 28.8 modem,
