MTNL Mumbai has probably become the first Broadband Service Provider in India to offer “Line Bonding Internet Service“.

What is Line Bonding ?
Line bonding is a process in which two broadband connections are taken and made them to work as one, so the Broadband Speed is doubled at the users end. For Example, if a user is receiving 4 Mbps download speed, with line bonding they can expect to receive 8 Mbpswhich is similar to fibre / FTTH broadband .

Why is Line Bonding Done ?
Some users are bandwidth guzzlers and want to merge two separate ADSL lines to get double the speed. They started doing so using a Router like ZyXel ADSL2+ Bonded 4-port Router which can support ADSL2+ connections. Thus to satiate such users, MTNL itself is doing so at the Exchange end (DSLAM).
