Whoa,whoa, whoa, WHOA. Hang on a second here :). Did you just say that
I can combine two internet connections on my phone line and get double
the speed? Is this 'OK' with Teksavvy, and if so, can we get a general
outline of how we set that up?
I've got teksavvy, voip, and a qos router and the phone line still gets
choppy when the kids are downloading videos. Doubling the speed would
be something I'd happily pay for.
