56k with an average connect rate of 52,000 bps.

I've found that saying "56k" isn't always helpful, seeing as how quite a few people I know connect with a capable modem yet only get 33.6 speeds. Of course, that's not to begrude the people that've already posted..or something :shrug:

had cable for a few years now
and what a deal it is

used to be 500k way back when. they kept upping it, now 5m (theoretically) both up and down. in practice i've gotten over 3m up and down, that's when there's a capable server, or transfering with another cable user.

the FCC regulates data transfered through normal phonelines...

But I believe it's 54k, not 53.2

hahahahaha.....
i'm at home right now...
using a 56k modem and connecting at 115.2k(through compression)

p/s:i think the max connection you can get with a 56k modem is 52k ,but maybe i'm wrong coz i bought my 56k modem for quite some time now.
