I merely guessed rifty's backround was well-suited for it, but he's declined.  What it boils down to is asking for advice on choosing a modem.

the USR courier or sportster modems are nice. So is supras line. My best suggestion? USR Courier X2. Even if you dont use the 56k it leaves ya with alotta bandwith to play with and my come in handy. I advise against Global Village modems. Ill probably take flack for that but i havent had good experiences with them and dont know many people that have. Besides the fact that they need special funky software and often require nonstandard modem init strings. On a supra im just using at&f1.

Didn't mean to upset you by continuing my questioning with others.  The first information you offered was valuable, but I thought I should seek confirmation from others.  I've since learned that standard phone lines currently handle only 53K traffic, and that, coupled with need for some undetermined communication speed "space" between my serial port and the modem itself, leads me to think I should stick to a lower, 33.6K upgrade.  What a shame--because cost-wise (having compared mail-order prices for Global Village modems only), upgrading from my 14.4K to either a 33.6K or 56K modem is almost identical on a kilobyte per dollar basis....  I, too, have heard of slight script incompatability between MacOT/PPP and Global Village modems, but am unaware of any major problems....  Again, something I'd like to hear from others on.  Perhaps I should skip back to usenet groups' wider audience for this kind of question.
