We saw those sorts of numbers with vanilla SLIP. Things improved to
around 1.0Kb/s with header-compressed SLIP. We saw numbers like
1.3-1.5Kb/s FTP throughput when using PPP.
Does anyone know when/if Telebit is going to put IP header
prediction into the modems (so they don't have to turn around for
Try using a smarter protocol, and the modems will do just fine.
Header compression helps a *lot*.
