Right! I couldn't put it better myself.

Try Zoom "56k USB", model 2985 instead:

umodem0 at uhub0 port 2 configuration 2 interface 0
umodem0: Zoom 
Telephonics, Inc. Zoom V90 USB Faxmodem, rev 1.00/1.00, \

umodem0: status change notification available
ucom0 at umodem0

this one connects at 37333 and downloads at 4.1 kB/s!
