Just tried tying my tying my ADSL and 3G connection together and doubled to connection to around 14M/3M:

Why Switchboard? These days, you've got access to multiple Wi-Fi, 3G/4G, and wired Internet connections no matter where you are and with Switchboard, you can leverage all of this bandwidth simultaneously to speed up video streaming, uploads, and VPNs, too. Once your Mac or PC connects using the Switchboard desktop app to our Speed Servers in the cloud, we do the rest: adding up the bandwidth of every Internet connection your computer has to give you speeds up to 50 Mbps. The best part is, when you join the Switchboard - Early Access Beta today, you're helping to shape this innovative technology, while getting the best price we'll ever offer.

Ummm - a little dubious here - does their software effectively route all your traffic through their "speed servers"?

In which case - no thanks.

Done on a per packet not per socket basis? Err, how does that work with TCP?

Their "speed servers" are just a VPN bonding server hosted on AWS, you're welcome to host your own using their client/server software.

The client provides packet-level load-balancing over individual network interfaces. This works with TCP because everything is recombined on the server (your public IP becomes that of the server).

You can also run your VPN, RDP or other encrypted connection over the top so Connectify have no way of seeing your traffic.

So if you have any problems with international bandwidth it will affect domestic traffic as well...

Presumably not if you're bonding over multiple ISP's.

You may have issues coming out of AWS Sydney though as I've found (IP range blocked by TradeMe and AWS' s upstream AU ISP's blocking Pirate Bay)
