FTTC Line bonding

Does Plusnet offer a FTTC bonded line service?
Or is it possible to add another FTTC line to a current package?
Thanks Tim

I don't think they do...would be no demand for it from the residential side
But a lot of routers support dual WAN - so should be feasible to do.

You could have two fibre connections if you had/have a second landline installed into the premises. As for bonding we don't provide that as a service though so you'd need to look for an alternate solution for that.

Re: FTTC Line bonding

What would the cost implacations be for a second line and fttc?
would it literally just be double that i currently pay?

Re: FTTC Line bonding

Yes, exactly - it'd be the same monthly cost (depending on account type) though having a new line installed would be another £50, plus if you wanted load balancing you'd need a bit of kit that would do that, and those don't run particularly cheap. Unless you're up for configuring a *nix server with three ethernet cards (two for the lines in and one for the line out to the home network) to do the work - no idea how you'd go about that but no doubt there's tutorials online - you're looking at anywhere between £150 to £thousands.

Hope that helps Smiley
