Hey guys,

Just wondering if we can get bonded connections in NZ, specifically bonded VDSL2?

Potentially 100MB down/20MB up with VDSL2 for those that cannot get Fibre for 3-8 years :(

Yeah you can, with snap, voyager etc. It's actually a top speed of around 140mb/s down and 20mb/s up if you can get on the 17a profile :)

Cool!

Does the ISP supply everything required,

Or do we need to get specific hardware to complete the task?

If so, what would the end user equipment be?

Chorus no not offer true bonded xDSL connections.

Many ISP's do offer the ability to do pseudo layer 2 bonding by installing several xDSL connections and effectively bonding these together.

The easiest/cheapest way I've found is 2 * Zyxel VDSL Routers in Bridge Mode and a Mikrotik Router RB2011.

This is quite correct, I have noticed though with some companys they charge to setup this and maintain, so sometimes its cheaper to get a second line yourself and have VDSL installed on it and run load balancing across the two.

wouldnt load balancing limit you to a single thread throughput of one connection though?

i would expect it to come at atlest a bit of a extra cost though.

That is a poor solution compared to an ISP offered solution - it's merely a basic form of load balancing, not bonding. You really need to be in control of both ends of the L2 connection to have a decent solution.

I never said a better solution than an ISP offered solution. I said cheaper. I simply offered another option if someone was to really try to continue down this road.
