Re: Combine connections using Pi

Excellent result.

Is this using your RasPi 3 or 4?
This is with a 4.
I found the Pi4 before the fttc went live. It was on the floor, right next to my desk. I'd looked all over for it!

As I feared, they reconnected the fttc to the cabinet 1.2 km away, rather than installing a new line to the cabinet 200 metres away, so the sync is 29.57 down, 6.95 up.

This combined with 4G gives me 14ms, 46.93 down, 41.31 up:

I wish I could get it that good! We used to have really good speeds from EE, but the mast we used was switched off for some reason. Three used the same site, but they came back on again there about a year later. EE didn't

But today I got this, which is good enough for my needs.

Speedtest.net reports the latency as the latency of the fttc connection, the download speed is about 85% of the two separate download speeds combined, and the upload speed is more like 90% of the two upload speeds combined.

I'm more than pleased with the results.


As am I, not quite believing it would be any good I bonded a 75/15 Plusnet FTTC and a 350/35 Virgin connection to an AWS endpoint. The Pi4 is not bothered by the workload and the results are in line with what's discussed above.

If I needed to put real volume through it I'd look for a VPS provider with lower data transfer costs though.
