The two files zzzl_3.012 and kqd6_3.012 are different versions of the 
firmware for different modem revisions.

try: "dmesg -a |grep ALCATEL" to see your modem revision.
mine says: ugen0: ALCATEL Speed Touch 330, rev 1.10/2.00, addr 2

 kqd6_3.012 is for revision 0 and 2, zzzl_3.012 is for revision 4.

You need to "Replace" mgmt.o with either one of these files, e.g. do a:
# mv kqd6_3.012 /usr/local/libdata/mgmt.o
this will over write the old mgmt.o file with this new one.
I didn't have much luck with it though, the connection was shaky.

The file speedmgmt.tar.gz contains a few files, you should just copy mgmt.o 
from it to your /usr/local/libdata/.

A list of commands for that would be:
# tar -xzvf speedmgmt.tar.gz
[extracting files]
# cd speedmgmt
# mv mgmt.o /usr/local/libdata/

Hope this helped.
