Here's how to get 56kbps connectivity for free:
To hack the Linuxant driver just use hexedit to replace the 74 number to 75 at offset 0x2659D of hsfmodem-hsfmodem-7.18.00.02full/modules/imported/hsfengine-i386.O or /usr/lib/hsfmodem/modules/imported/hsfengine-i386.O (if the driver is already installed):
Press ENTER, type 2659D, press ENTER, type 75, press ENTER, press Ctrl+X,
type Y, press ENTER.
Things may look slightly different depending on the version of the driver. however, this will not give you fax functionality
