Re: Can anyone confirm this for us?	

Certainly, the whole selling point of the 56k/X2 modems is that
you can surf the web faster - meaning that traffic _to_ the enduser
(pulled down webpages, music data etc.) has to be greater than with the
older 28.8/33.6 modems. 

The traffic _out_ from the enduser to the 'net is not a problem when
surfing :-)
