I always connect around 45 with my v.90 modem. I think it all depends on the ISP.

The difference reults in a 2kb/sec download speed increase. Since I normally download at 2.1 or 2.2, it doubles the download speed.
Once I get my video card upgrade straightened out, I intend to upgrad to a v92.
My guess is that they are able to filter out the line noise a little better than the v90.
But, if you already connect at something over 40, I wouldn't bother. You probably won't see much difference.
