40 is certainly more than 20% of 56. BUT

matters not. First, the federal com laws limit the 56 K to 5.3.3 K.

Second your connect speed is determined by many things regarding the quality and the length of the phone lines from your home to the first switching circuit.

Do a search for a post by Coryphaeus [aka Wayne Hardy}. There will be a link to his website that will provide some insight. The site gives insight.LOL
