Which end did you take the timings from? I assume the ISP end.
If not, these numbers are meaningless.

With cslip, and 1.3.80, over masquerade, I'm getting 3.5 Kb/s
with random data.

What happens if you do NOT set serial port to spd_vhi? I've
never done that. I still don't see a reason to do it. Then
again, I don't use the computer with the modem attached for much
else, so the time spent talking to the modem isn't that important
for me.
