What can I say? That's not our reality. Every little HP OfficeJet el-cheapo
multifunction inkjet device does ECM, MMR and V.34 (up to 33.6) speed faxing
these days. That's reflected in a large number of greater than 14,400 speed
connections (typically 28.8). They're not considered bells and whistles ..
they're just standard.
