(As this thread slowly unravels into many different strands...)

Teksavvy offers MLPPP, Multi-Link PPP.  With the right router firmware
you can bond two separate DSL lines to get double the throughput (and
double the cap if you're not on unlimited).  

The MLPPP protocol adds some bytes to the Ethernet packet header; this
offsets all the other identifying bytes in the header, so Bell's DPI can
no longer identify particular kinds of traffic to throttle.

[Phil] ... and DPI isn't smart enough to recognize this and get the bytes from 
their new offsets?
