Hey all,

I am wondering if Telecom supports joining 2 x ADSL connections together, for double the bandwidth and speed,

I have found load balancing units which have 2x wan ports, but those only double your bandwidth, and not speed.

But overseas they can combine 2x dsl connections at the exchange, so that you only have 1 service over 2 pairs of copper...

Can anybody shed some light on this stuff?

I run a IT Business from home and need the speed :)

Cheers

Have you read this?

Talks about a solution that Snap came up with for exactly what you're asking. So, maybe talk to them?

overseas - mainly in the UK, bonded adsl is provided by the smaller ISP's using their own equipment in unbundled exchanges. Its a specialist service and I believe only orcon and slingshot / vodafone have the capability to do this as chorus refuse to except on shdsl lines.

Oh also they have the capability since they own the dslam's - but dont as far as i know

I would have thought that with the PPP terminating at the ISP, they could do multilink if they chose to.

It's exchange dependent, on inner city exchanges the cost is closer to $300/month for a 2M circuit.  It only reaches $1k+ when you get into areas that are miles out.

The ISAMS proxy the PPPoA session initially - I have not tried MLPPPoA but I would be suprised if they passed it.

Pens comments on the Snap thread are spot on. You will end up with out of order issues doing per packet based load balancing and per flow load balancing does not appear to be what the OP is after.

There are ways to do this but it requires potentially some bespoke setup from your ISP. Setting up a L2PT tunnel to your ISP and then running MLPPPoE over this would be one example. Of course dependent on the traffic type passing over these links then that might start getting pretty weighty on the overhead.

Telecom Wholesale owns the exchanges and cabinets if I'm not mistaken.




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.

I think the market for this type service would be so small it's not economic to offer it.
