On the subject of ISDN/56K modems, my cable TV provider, NYNEX, is now
testing cable modems: Motorola CyberSURFER. (I assume they are actually
'adapters' rather than 'modems')

Anybody have any info on that modem? Comparisons with ISDN?

What is the theoretical bandwidth of cable anyway? It has to be WAY
faster than telephone lines - if full-screen TV can come down the line,
will we be able to send it (in theory)? Or would that involve a strand
of optical fibre/the equivalent each? I'm not all that up with this
technology, sorry!
