V.92 Modems

When buying a new modem, you will have have the choice of V.90 or V.92. Of the two types, the V.92 offers a fairly significant benefit. V.92 modems remember previous connections and use that information to connect faster on subsequent connections. Those few less seconds connecting are nice if you connect frequently. The faster time-to-connect speeds of the V.92 make it a good buy for USFamily.Net users.

V.92 modems offer 2 other features which most ISPs, including USFamily.Net, do not support. These are:

  • Call on hold: (there are already 3rd party devices and services to assist in this area)
  • Slightly Faster upload: (this benefits few users as download speed is what users look for).
