Excuse my ignorance but I’m new here but someone recommended this forum for this sort of thing.
I have a relatively slow VDSL connection (~40/10mb) and am looking for the best practical option at increasing my overall speed. I can’t put any more wires/fibre into my building due to regs etc and am trying to figure out the best alternative option.
In my ideal world, I could see the solution as joining my 40mb VDSL connection with a 300/50mb 4G service to produce something like a 340/60mb connection and am curious to see if this is possible somehow (5G will be here soon so hopefully will upgrade as and when).
Wondering if you geniuses knew what the most sensible options are. I’d like to keep my VDSL line as the latency is good for the odd bit of gaming/skype etc, the 4G latency is maybe 150ms which is alright (but not ideal). Could I bond them via a remote VPN or anything silly like that? Otherwise I assume the only option is load balancing via a router. I don’t mind building a new machine (although already have a fairly effective server/NAS) but thought I’d ask just incase there are any obvious options I’ve overlooked.
I’ve already got a decent VDSL modem and would probably prefer a dedicated 4G/5G modem (to match band spec etc), so that points towards a custom machine regardless as I see there are some vaguely appropriate AIO solutions.
Really I’m looking to increase my upload speed so I can easily create offsite backups of 4k video material (for the record, I’m a airline captain, not a pornographer) and wondered what you guys would suggest. I’d rather not have the faff of one machine that is just connected to 4G for uploads etc and thought there must be some better solution and I’m happy to invest time/money in the project just to learn.
