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.
