I should work fine (slow, low res) as a text terminal.  I used one at 300 baud to connect to compuserve and GENIE in the 80s.

A friend of mine has a TRS-80 Videotex Terminal, which seems to be a very
limited CoCo1, intended solely for use with dial-up services which no
longer exist.
Other than being a display piece, is there any way of actually using it?
Could it dial in to a modem BBS?
