due to the increasing internet usage in the family, looking into ways of improving the bandwidth available to us (being a ruralish.. customer its very well, limited by distance.. RBI not due for a few years still)
so i thought ild look into load balancing using pfsense running on a old box, that bit im pretty clear on and dont have an issue sorting.
however, from reading many posts around here.. it would seem there are some houses with only 1 pair laid, so a second line involves having a whole new line put in.. this wouldn't be possible really considering the length, shape and trees on the driveway. dont think the pipes are big enough that a cable could be blown down the current pipe iver..
would my isp be able to tell how many pairs are actually ran to the house? or am i better off finding a screw drive that will get the ETP open to count them manually? (i figured a big enough flat-head screw driver should do them..)
lastly, it would seem not many isps website will even allow the consideration of naked dsl to our address, is there any way around this? - ild prefer not to be paying for a phone line which will never be used.
for currently connected directly to the WAK exchange..

would seem the loop attention is slowly creeping up (recently had the lines cut at the end of the road.. adding more repairs to the already dodgy cable) ..
just trying to squeeze what we can out of the line :)
