Re: [DSL] Bonded DSL
Exactly. Unless Frontier installs VDSL, there is nothing to do at the CO except install a second wire pair for the customer. As far as the CO's equipment is concerned, the customer just has two phone lines. All the bonding takes place at the CPE.
Actually, bonded DSL does have to have certain CO work. For instance, the cards in the CO or remote , would have to support ADSL+2 ; and ports need to be in sequence. I have recently provisioned single ports on ADSL+2 and not GMT that have worked at 19M/2 at 3kft loops. As long as the cable pairs are ground bonded correctly, with zero bridge taps, it works perfect. VDSL is common to bonded, but only uses one pair.
