Is Courier worth the price over the still expensive USR 56k Faxmodem ext? My phone line is very noisy. Current connection speed with the 56k Faxmodem is 28.8 - 36k.

I don't think the courier will make a big differance with line noise. most of teh courier line is digital ISDN ther are only a few analogs and they are very expensive. It would be cheaper to run a new phone line that goes directly from your computer to your phone junction box and see if the line noise is in your house or the phone company.

It is also wise to call your phone company and just have them do a line test, if the problem is not just in the lines to your house, or in your house. They will need to fix them anyway. And the test for the outside lines away from your home is free.

There is little difference in the connect speed you can expect with a USR Faxmodem and a Courier. In fact, the less expensive USR models may perform slightly better depending upon a whole host of factors.
