Going to be moving to a location where internet access will be sub optimal. Only (real) choice is DSL with a max rate of 8/1. No data caps. Other options are satellite internet (bad) and LTE (2 bars and switches to 3G often). So my realistic only choice is DSL. I was thinking about getting 2 lines and either bonding them or load balancing them. I've done a fair amount of reading on them, but not being a true computer guy, I am lacking the fundamental information. Currently I have 50/10. We do a lot of streaming. Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, YouTube, etc. Its common to have 3 streams running at the same time (TV and 2 iPads). I rarely game anymore, but I will replace my PC with an XB or PS when we move. Right now I have cable TV, but after the move we will not have cable or satellite. 100% streaming. As far as bonding the lines go. I understand that the bonding must be done with the ISP and having a compatible router. The ISP has told me that they will NOT help me bond the lines. If that is really true then bonding is completely out, but I am thinking if I escalate the issue then they will bond them on their side. Now if I do load balancing, then I do not have to deal with the ISP. Its all on my end. Is that correct? Lets say we are doing 2 streams of Netflix (and nothing else). Will one stream go to one line and the other stream go to the other line? As opposed to 1 stream of Netflix and 1 stream of Amazon, I assume they will go to separate lines. Of course I could just go with a single line. I have a feeling that will cause disharmony in the family. Any thoughts or advice on this situation? Edit. My other bills will plummet, so I do not mind paying more in this area.
