Maybe you do; maybe I don't. Gotta support your family, you know. (Note the original sender :-) Check this out! (Note that a bunch of Japanese ISPs have already signed up.) The comment about upgrading via a software download is particularly intriguing; this doesn't require new hardware??! If you can really get 56 kbps connections over regular phone lines, X will work pretty well. But many people seem to have trouble at 28.8kbps. However, the "software" comment and other aspects make it sound like it's a compression technology or something that would work at various underlying rates. In any case, it looks like the technology will fly commercially.

REPLY IF YOU GET THIS U.S. ROBOTICS ADDS MORE THAN 60 ISPs, BRINGING TO 100 THE NUMBER SUPPORTING x2 TECHNOLOGY FOR 56 KBPS INTERNET AND REMOTE ACCESS ISPs Represent More Than 16 Million Subscribers Who Will Have Access to Faster Downloads Over Standard Phone Lines SKOKIE, Ill., -- January 6, 1997 -- U.S. Robotics (NASDAQ:USRX) today announced that it has added more than 60 Internet service providers, bringing to 100 the number now supporting U.S. Robotics' x2[tm] technology, which provides Internet and on-line connections over regular phone lines at up to 56 Kbps -- nearly twice as fast as those currently available. The 100 ISPs supporting x2 include regional and national ISPs, plus the world's largest global ISPs and online services. U.S. Robotics has just launched its ISP Xtreme Advantage Program, which provides co-marketing opportunities for ISPs, and will continue expanding the list of ISPs supporting x2 as the program gets underway. The list of ISPs committed to supporting x2 to date represents a total of more than 16 million consumer and business subscribers. "The support we're receiving for x2 technology is overwhelming, and we're pleased that regional and global ISPs and on-line service providers have lined up behind this breakthrough technology," said Ross Manire, senior vice president and general manager of U.S. Robotics' Network Systems Division. "People from all parts of the world will be using x2 technology to download graphics-intensive files and other data at nearly double the current maximum analog modem speed." U.S. Robotics expects to be first to market with a 56 Kbps product, and anticipates that it will deliver the only complete, end-to-end solution for 56 Kbps with products for both ends of the connection available in the first quarter of 1997. "Because U.S. Robotics controls its DSP technology, our ISP customers can upgrade their remote access servers in their points of presence via a software upgrade, enabling them to easily add x2 support," Manire said. "And, they can easily upgrade to other new technologies by adding new software, protecting their technology investment and giving them the flexibility to easily add new capabilities." The following is a list of the 100 Internet Service Providers that have announced their support for U.S. Robotics' x2 technology: Australia Microplex Netexpress Austria Netway Belgium PPC SYS Brazil Integris/Algarnet Itanet On-Line Ltda Canada Canada Internet Direct Inc.
