i have done this in the past (15-20 yrs ago) with 2 dial up modems and 2 phone lines. however, i dont see the point of doing this with broadband connection.

If one wanted faster download speeds would the computer utalize both connections or just leave one inactive?

If Vodafone support multi - linking on their network it might be possible, in my experience most isp's charge extra for the service and I don't think vodafone have it.

You could get a speed increase if you are downloading multiple files at a time often and spead the workload over each connection, but you won't get double speed on a single file.

Running two data sticks does work however you'll need a load balancing router to support this. Cradlepoint do a unit that can have multiple USB devices plugged into it.

Your plan falls down from the speed aspect however because odds are both will be connected to the same cellsite. To get any significant benefit you need to be using devices on two different networks.
