About Those 56 Kbps Modems

Send Article to a Friend

About Those 56 Kbps Modems -- If you're thinking about blazing through the Internet with a 56 Kbps modem, you might want to check out NetBITS-008, which features an article looking at how 56K modems work and why the competing K56Flex and X2 standards may be burning users. The issue also talks about image compression methods, laments the passing of Gopher and WAIS, and catches a wave with the originator of the phrase "surfing the Internet." Also, if you have questions about Web graphics, you may find answers in NetBITS-007, where Glenn Fleishman explains GIF, JPEG, PNG, and more. That issue also talks about email bounces and debunks the current misinformation being spread about America Online. If you find these NetBITS articles useful, you can receive NetBITS in email each week automatically by sending email to <netbits-on@netbits.net>. [ACE]
