I'm in a house with 4 self-contained units, my neighbor below me is getting UFB installed and we intend on sharing the connection. We're getting that crazy fast 200 Spark one, I wonder if a dual WAN router, like this one: https://www.asus.com/nz/Networking/RTAC68U/ can be used to combine two separate UFB accounts, doubling our speed and potentially leaving a whole separate cable for low latency gaming? So 2 cheaper, slower fibre plans, but with load balancing applied /QOS to it? Any thoughts?

The simple answer. Yes and no.

 

Yes you can semi load balance two connections but your performance will be significantly slower and worse than one fast connection, and no, that device won't do it.

 

You'd pay more for 2 x 100Mbps UFB plans that what you would for a 200Mbps plan anyway so I'd not sure where any gains would be.
