Bonding


[link to this post]
 
Last week a PSTN engineer told us we were connected to P29 and could get FTTC. Zen and DSLChecker both confirmed the same results, using the phone number and address.

Yesterday Openreach told us the complete opposite - apparently we have an EO line. We are now in talks with Openreach trying to get to the bottom of this.

In the event Openreach come back to us and say we definitely have an EO line, what are our options? The exchange is literally over the road, about 5 meters from our building. ADSL2+ is available, so could we not get multiple ADSL2+ lines bonded together to give us a make-shift faster connection? By bonded, I don't mean at our end with multiple routers/modems. My understanding of bonding is the connection in the exchange is bonded together and presented at the premises as a single connection. Is that right or is this not possible?

Are there any alternatives for an EO line?

Don't believe BT do any consumer products where they bond ADSL at their end. The only bonding normally provided by ISPs is by delivering multiple lines to the end premises.

Without knowing which exchange hard to comment, but it is possible that you are an EO line moving to being connected to cabinet 29, Someone may have looked at a in advance list and another at an old list.

Is it really Openreach you are talking to and not the retail arm of BT?

On the bonding it means multiple copper lines and then hardware to bond this at the premises see what http://www.aa.nu/kb-broadband-bonding.html offer
