Nearly missed this bit. The DSV-11 was rated at 256kbps but
it can actually do either a tiny smidgen over (or a tiny
smidgen under) 1Mbps on a worst case HDLC sequence,
essentially forever.

There was no supported service around that speed (I think
the UK Megastream was 1.024Mbps) so it was sold as

Feel free to overclock it - it should handle it
just fine!
