Bonded FTTC


[link to this post]
 
Does anyone know of an ISP which offers bonded FTTC which doesn't use MLPPP?

I've already tried ADSL 24 and they aren't offering the service frown

what flavour of "bonding" are you after ?

Andrews & Arnold may be worth a look.

I've been looking at the fully loaded Firebrick 2700 for a home install, but I would want 2x 80/20 packages preferably office/business catered.

Just had a look at A&A but they're extortinate for bandwidth allowance, am I reading correctly that 20GB for "day time" units per month and not daily limit..they want near enough £60 for that. I was looking at about £150 per month max for both lines, and a restricted day time use but unlimited evening.

Just out of interest why not mlppp? We're doing mlppp on 3 FTTC circuits with good results and that's with a fairly inexpensive MikroTik router.

Not sure you'll find many office/business products with unlimited evening allowances, that's more suited for home use I would think.

A&A pricing is a bit complex. I just had a quick fiddle with the interactive thing and 10 GB/month office hours and 300 GB/month off peak would be £61.20 per line for the bandwidth only per month.

Which are you doing MLPPP with? Are BT wholesale supporting MLPPP in the network for VDSL2 now? (They don't support it on the ADSL platforms IIRC)

it works on ADSL, but isn't supported by BT as it's a layer above what they control.

I was under the asumption that MLPPP is an old protocol used for ISDN and ADSL lines, from what I read on Firebricks website there method was more suited for FTTC.

As for download packages, I still think A&A are steep - The ADSL 24 package is much better looking, 90GB during peak times per month, and unlimited during the off-peak hours.

Looking at the Goscomb website they're also very restrictive on downloads...

I really don't see the point in pushing faster speeds onto the nation, when the majority of places consider 200gb a heavy user; it defeats the [censored] point in the first place.

Don't forget the night-time allowance of 1TB per unit, and that units are infinitely splittable.

Is there any packages available to view on their website? I couldn't find any info on the bonded FTTC services.
