Cable Modems and ISDN???
I am very interested in the issue of cable modems vs. ISDN.
I believe I read recently that cable modems are incapable of video
conferencing and voice. Is this entirely true?
Assuming that it is, and having worked with ISDN with multilink ppp,
I have found 128 kps very adequate for both surfing the Internet and
downloading larger files. I recently benchmarked a 28.8 analog modem
against an ISDN at 128 kps in downloading a 4 MB file. It took 28
minutes with the modem and 5 with the ISDN line. This leads me to
think that ISDN is not only a near term technology at the ready but
may indeed have life after cable modems are deployed, whenever that
Any comments or opinions?
