Fred --

The reason some of us have high expectations is that we have EXPERIENCED
high performance down as low as -9600- baud (!) with POTS connections ..
I have experienced full duplex A++ quality sound along with an active
WHITEBOARD and including full duplex COLOR VIDEO at about one frame per
second .. at 9600 baud on a hand held cell phone. However that was POTS
and not a networked connection -- still it hints at what may someday be
possible even via networking don't you think?
