I agree Huw, ADSL line bonding is a good idea if it's worthwhile. But, for me, to get over 10Mbps down & 1Mbps up, as you say, I'd need 3 lines - very expensive! I think that would be a last resort (well, apart from Satellite, which is the *very* last resort [I can understand using it on moving vehicles/ships or somewhere where there isn't even a landline capable of 0.5 Mbps downstream, but otherwise...]).
But, as you sync at 8Mbps on your line, then you'd get a decent 16 down by line bonding.
For my part - I think I'll continue investigating 4G & FWA (via a WISP or point-to-point wireless link).
I may also try the ADSL "Max Premium" for a while, to see if that helps.
Ah, Llanon, near Llanrhystud - I pass through there quite often when I pop up to Porthmadog from time-to-time! Still the old vintage bus at the Aberystwyth end of the village! I bet if you were still there, you'd have FTTC or FTTP by now: LLANON Exchange
...! The Llanon exchange (like many of the smaller exchanges in Ceredigion) appears to offer the possibility of FTTP for future connections.... I wish we had that possibility at Rhydlewis exchange! Oh well...
Think I'll get the TP-Link Archer MR200
4G router (and maybe Solwise Antenna
too) and have a play around with that (can also line bond my ADSL line to that if necessary via my DrayTek router, although data caps become an issue with 4G, ok for occasional or light use).
Anyway - thanks again Huw, some more ideas to think about.
Diolch yn fawr iawn!
