How long does it take to fax a page?

How long does it take for a page to transmit via fax?

Here is a breakdown of the average time it takes for a single page fax to transmit based on the Baud Rate of the sending and receiving fax lines.  These are average times of fax transmission speeds, the black on a page, the longer it takes.

Baud Rate        Minutes per Page

2400        2 minutes 30 seconds to 50 seconds
4800        1 minute 45 seconds to 50 seconds
7200        1 minute 15 seconds
9600        1 minute
12000     55 seconds
14400     45 seconds
28800     35 seconds
33600     25 seconds

The transmission speed will adjust to the lower baud rate of the two fax lines.  An example of this would be if the sending baud rate is 33600 and the receiving baud rate is 14400 then the transmission rate will be the 14400 baud rate.
