Read the table again. Read it carefully.
Look at the TIMES.

Total fallacy. Test was conducted with modems using the latest
greatest MNP. It STILL took much less than HALF THE TIME
to deliver the EXACT SAME AMOUNT OF DATA when the 'text'
was already compressed prior to transmission.

The argument that 'the modems take care of compression'
is nonsense and I am tired of hearing about it.

Are you blind? It took much less than HALF THE TIME
to deliver the EXACT SAME AMOUNT of data?
