- 300bps transmission
- 1200bps transmission
Modems that conform to the v.32bis format have a limit of 14.4Kbps

- Your phone must be within 3.5 miles of the central office where it is connected (the phone company will test your line while as you talk to them and give you distance of your phone to the central office).
Longer distances will cause the connection to be 33.6, and sometimes might not be able to make the connection. The distance is at this time critical.
- The theoretical limit is not quiet 56k but more like 53kbps and that is only on the incoming data. Outgoing data is limited to 33.6kbps.
