v34 et al are just the modem standards and includes the compression schemes, the security methods and the error correction (like 802.11b or g for WiFi). Don't go with a provider that cannot give you at least v92 (the latest greatest 56k standard), the highest ISP standard will always be backward compatible with a crappy modem if you don't have the best. Besides, it would be extremely bizarre if an ISP didn't support v.92.<br><br>
