I currently have a 120mb virgin connection which has been going down frequently of late. This has been due to virgin network issues in the area and is not specific to my line. As I work from home it's really important for me to have internet access all the time so I've been looking at getting a fibre connection to go along with the cable connection.
I'm a little unsure which load balancer to go for as I'm concerned that a lot of the load balancing routers on the home/small office end won't actually support the throughput capable on these lines. With virgin being 120mb down an 10mb and the fibre connection around 70mb down and 20mb up that means that the router would need to be able to support 190mb down and 30mb up. (note: yes I do understand that a single connection will only go over one line and so the maximum speed for a single download will not be 190mb).
I've been looking at some of the draytek load balancing models with the throughput in this review states 147 Mbps (http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/lanwan/lanwan-reviews/31354-draytek-vigor-2920-reviewed?start=3). I'm always a bit fuzzy on the speed terminology, my understanding is that this router would not be as fast as the combine connection speeds (someone please correct me if I'm wrong).
It looks like there is a Netgear SRX5308 mentioned in the same review that would have a suitable throughput at a reasonable price. I've also seen there is peplink balance, although it looks like the price of these is rather high for the throughput I need.
Would anyone be able to sugest a suitable load balancing router I would be able to use?
