Why not use MNP all the time?  With the modem locked at 19200 to the
machine - even 2400 baud callers with MNP get transfers in the 280cps
range if their modem is also locked at a higher baud rate.

I would assume if you kept your blazer locked at a fixed DTE speed -
slower speed MNP callers would also get a throughput greater than
the connect speed.
