3Com plans to introduce a $99 internal modem based on the new V.90 56Kbps standard by the end of March.
It will be a V.90 version of its entry level Winmodem. There is currently a 56Kbps Winmodem model, but it uses 3Com's own X2 technology rather than the upcoming industry standard. It currently retails for $129.
On average, 56Kbps modems have dropped in price by $100 since appearing last March. Analysts predict the $99 product will prompt further price erosion in the market.
Winmodems differ from traditional modems because they 'feed' on a PC?s processor instead of having one of their own.
