modem rapide


Explanation:
In modern technical English, "high-speed" is just a more stylish English word for "fast". Although it may literaly be translated by "ultra-rapide", the very common usage of this term suggests that it refers only to a modem that is not slow, i.e. any common 56 (or even 33) Kbps modem is indeed a high-speed modem.
