[02] HOW MANY DIALUP NUMBERS?  CAN I USE ANY NUMBER? (ROAM)
     
     There are over 10,000 DIALUP/ISDN numbers Nationwide and Canada.
     You can use *ANY* number you wish, so its perfect for people
     who travel. 

     Most numbers are v.92, which means you can most likely connect
     anywhere between 52000 bps and 56000 bps if your modem/serial
     port supports that data rate.  Bit rates as low as 1200 are
     supported if your hardware requires that.  ISDN connections
     support 64000 bps per B channel. 

     If you want to be really geeky about your connectivity, 'getdialup'
     provides you with the DIALUP NETWORK you would be gaining access to.
     Here are a list of the two letter acronyms and who the represent.
