We recommend that your high-speed connection have a capacity of at least 64 Kbps upstream and downstream.

You understand and acknowledge that the Service may not be compatible with all non-voice communications equipment, including but not limited to, home security systems, medical monitoring equipment, fax machines, satellite television systems, and computer modems.
