I have set up a temporary solution with a load balancing/gateway group pfSense server. It'll do for now, and as long as I use a download manager or something that can use multiple connections, I get 12.5mbps down and 1.5mbps up. That works for me for now, but $80 per month is crap when they could very easily put me on bonded if they wanted, especially since I have two active lines.
I'd even be willing to pay the $80 per month for 12mbps/1.5mbps bonded simply because it'd be less of a headache for me to maintain. Now I have to worry about another server sucking power instead of a little modem.
Frontier really ticks me off sometimes...I can't imagine them running all these DSL customers off a DS3 line, but I've seen weird things. My high school ran off a single T1 line, and we had 3 full computer labs and at least 2 smaller labs. Stretch the backhaul to the max and when things stop working or slow to an absolute crawl, install a few OC3 lines or higher.
I've had confirmation from the techs that a Frontier branded U-verse service is coming to my area, so I know we can expect 12mbps, but he said it's doubtful if we see VDSL until 2014. Here's hoping I only have to shell out $80 per month for a few months until the upgrades...--
