High-Speed Personal Computer Fax Server

      Disclosed is a method to send data fast through a facsimile
connected to a telephone line without increasing cost.

      A facsimile sends data to a personal computer on which some
modem cards are installed.  The personal computer divides the data
into some segments and sends them through the installed modem cards.
If N modem cards are available, 1/N time reduction for sending the
data is achieved.  Therefore, total connection time on a telephone
line equals to time by using only one modem card.

      This method is not limited to a facsimile.  It can be also used
when sending data of image or voice.
