3Com on the Internet

Mega-merger: 3Com to acquire USRobotics in $6.6 billion deal.
3Com is a member of the so-called "Open 56K Forum," a promotional group for "K56flex" 56K technology from Rockwell. It's unclear what impact the acquisition will have on the competition with "x2" 56K technology from USRobotics. (See "What are 56K modems?")

Note: In the opinion of this author the advertising claims made for the EtherLink III LAN+Modem PC Card ("modem that is actually 50% faster than the leading competitor's") may well be misleading. This author doubts that the EtherLink III LAN+Modem PC Card is significantly faster than other V.34 modems in real world applications.
