Standard created by the ITU (International Telecommunication Union) for 56k modems. The V.90 standard for modems controls things like the handshake procedure time when a dial-up modem is trying to connect to the Internet. The V.90 standard was required because of two competing 56k technologies which were X2 and K56flex. If you have a X2 or K56Flex modem, you may be able to upgrade to V.90 by contacting your modem manufacturer. The upgrade will be in the form of a software download. Nearly all modems you buy now are 56k modems have v.90 as standard, and with broadband becoming more widespread, v.90 is becoming an old technology. You can still however buy v.90 modems from a range of UK shops you can find here at UK Shop Index.
