56K Modem compression
Posted on 2004-09-20
Could someone explain compression on 56K modems? Does 56Kb include or exclude compression? In tests, I seem to be able to get download speeds of up to 9 or 10 KB per second from a 56Kb modem; by contrast, I only get about 4.6KB for graphics. What compression algorithms are being used? Gzip? Any help to explain how this works would be greatly appreciated.
