This is a very valid point. Demon has several different modem systems on
different "Romps" so that you can connect your V90 modem to the best
match. If you pick the wrong romp for your modem (even when you have V90
at both ends) you will get very poor speeds. Unless someone has a large
database of modem specifications, along with the specs of the relevant
Manufacturers' ROM patches, you would need to test the connection on each
romp to determine the most suitable. 

Best wishes,
