  1. 1GB = 1 billion bytes; actual formatted capacity less.
  2. Requires adapter, sold separately.
  3. Compatible ISP and telephone services required; fees may apply. Your ISP may not support all V.92 features. Modem will function according to V.90 standards if V.92 services are not available. Actual modem speeds lower.

Actual speed will vary based on range, connection rate, site conditions, size of network and other factors.
  5. Weight varies by configuration and manufacturing process.
