Line bonding is a feature which allows you to use 2 telephone lines merging them into 1 internet connection. Theoretical download speed is the sum of connection speed set on both lines.
1) Pay line rental for 2 lines.
2) Compatibility problems
3) Poor quality modems drop connections (You must buy your own modem)
4) Cannot trust MTNL to provide seamless experience
5) MTNL cannot provide stable connection on 1 line. Imagine the nightmare on 2 lines.
6) Way too costly and dumb FUP
7) No steady pings
8) Support from CC would be annoying
1) Slightly less than double speed of single connection
2) Suitable for people who download occasionally
If the idiots at MTNL are listening, "Why not bump up your existing plans to 8 mbps? ADSL 2+ can do that just fine"
totally agree with tht dude. the fup is ridiculous for 8mbps speed. its a nightmare trying to explain them problems with a single line. imagine talking to the cc trying to explain them a problem on a bonded line !!!. on top of tht they wud use the excuse that "there must be a problem with your equipment. everything is fine at our end" everytime u complain. they do that all the time when ppl use their own modems. this plan provides them with a readymade excuse of putting the blame on the customer's head.
Will this work with a single line? Will we 'theoretically' get 8Mbps with a single line?
MTNL uses ADSL 2+ which is capable of 24 mbps theoretical speeds. Actual speeds range from 8 mbps to 15 mbps depending on line condition. But 8 mbps is easily possible and there is no need for line bonding. Those who opt for this plan are in for a bag full of hurt.
