Any idea how to find out how many dial up modems an average ISP has for for users to connect to?

ISP Modems?

Do you mean the number of connection points the ISP has for people to dial-in to. Or maybe your after what the contension ratio is for dialup - the number of users wanting to connect compared to the number of connection points available at the ISP.

No idea sorry.

ISP Modems?

PlusNet dialup in most cases is actually terminated at the exchange and uses the surfport system to transfer data over BT's network, therefore the number of available modems depends on what exchange you are and how many other people are connecting to ISPs who use surfport.
