Re: More than One DSL Line?
Thanks for the comments. I decided against Exede, the latency is about 10-15 times as long as DSL, which would mean that webpages would likely load slower with the 12 Mbps Exede vs. the 4.0 DSL, not to mention the data cap and the 2 year contract fee. The cheaper plan is $60 per month for two years, they fail to include the $9.99 modem lease fee in the ads.
At any rate, because CTL is the only game in town for high speed, no cable or wireless provider, I called CTL, and actually got to speak with an intelligent CSR. She explained that I could get the dry DSL connection for $30 per month, and that she would send a technician out to install and do a line quality test to see if 4.0 is the fastest download speed that I can get. I have ordered a SysWAN Duolinks SW24 router to allow load balancing between the two connections. Maybe at the least it will provide more bandwidth for my network, if not more speed. I appreciate the suggestions.
