after lurking forever I finally registered to ask this question.
I have two bad overpriced Internet connections… from two different bad providers, one using DSL and one LTE (middle of a US suburb in the heartland of AT&T - there is no competition so I doubt this will ever change). No fiber and too far south for Starlink (for now).
What I’d like to do is aggregate bandwidth. Rather than failover, or per-connection routing, I’m looking for something that takes into account per-link packet loss and any changes in per-link throughput and reassembles everything properly on the other end, in order to use the aggregate of both links even for a single connection.
Are there any bandwidth aggregation options other than Speedify or Peplink’s speed fusion, ideally something I could install myself on pf/opnsense or a Linux router on one side and a Linux VPS on the other? I think Speedify’s pricing is acceptable, but it’s really meant to be installed on desktop clients and I don’t particularly like sharing an originating IP with others, plus no inbound connections. Peplink (combination of hardware and service) is outside my price range.
I currently have dual WAN with failover but it’s less than satisfying because the wireless connection is unreliable and the DSL connection is slow.
