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.  Please keep in mind that these are average times of fax transmission speeds.

Baud Rate Inbound Minutes per Page Outbound Minutes per Page
2400 2 minutes 30 seconds 2 minutes 50 seconds
4800 1 minute 45 seconds 1 minute 50 seconds
7200 1 minute 15 seconds 1 minute 15 seconds
9600 1 minute 1 minute
12000 55 seconds 55 seconds
14400 45 seconds 45 seconds
28800 35 seconds 35 seconds
33600 25 seconds 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.
