will tell you the signal. You should be able to attach to one of the
other sub interfaces on the modem (eg cu -l /dev/cuaU0.1) and issue the
even when you are connected via PPP to see what the signal strength is.
There are other commands too that can tell you the type of connection
you currently have etc, but they are typically modem specific.
