More info would he helpful.

Yes, you can get one broadband account with multiple broadband connections, e.g. http://help.vodafone.co.nz/app/answers/detail/a_id/5806.

Several threads here discuss further options:
neighbouring houses
houses a km apart
houses many kms apart

I don't think its possible with DSL. Some ISPs like Unleahs will allow you to share a data plan across multiple connection though. You would end up paying a base cost for each connection and then a single shared data pack.

Your post still doesn't make a lot of sense. If you're wanting to know if you can "share" a single connection between two locations the answer is no. You'll need to pay for two.

If you're asking if you can have two connections on the same bill, the answer is yes. It's something you'll probably find most ISP's offer.


I fix stuff!

its not possible to have 1 DSL line connected to 2 places at the same time. The technology just doesn't allow for it.

Only really worked that way in the days of dial up.

Orcon (and others) will allow multiple accounts on the one bill, but it won't give you the saves you are after.

It still costs the ISP to connect a line, more specialist ISP's such as Unleash allow for 2 or more lines sharing one data pack, but your standard "common" ISP doesn't allow for it.

If you've got line of sight between the two houses, no trees in way and distance not too great <20km then grab yourself a pair of ubiquiti nano bridges (use google).  Pay for one broadband connection in one house and link it to the other using the two nano bridges.  Im doing extactly that over 1.2km to get UFB to my place, only because I cant get UFB otherwise, my street is well down the list.
