Global Village Manufacturer Info
has been in the modem business for a long time. Most of their reputation is
built on their bulletproof and dependable Global Village modems used with so many Macs
(Apple computers) around the world. Most of these modems are external and if you have a Mac
that connects to the internet, chances are a Global Village modem is involved. Global Village
modems tend to cost slightly more and they do sell modems for PC's as well (win95, NT, etc).
Their 56k modems make use of the Conexant (formerly Rockwell)
chipset and they support the 56kFlex, V.90 and V.92 standards. Global Village has also entered the Cable
Modem market with its Global Village CableModem Kit for Macintosh
As of August 1st, 2000, Global Village (and Boca Research) are now owned by Zoom Telephonics
Their website has undergone many changes and the site has been transformed from a vague hard
to find site (in my opinion) to a very good modern support site.
