dslreports.com/forum US ISPs non-cable → CenturyLink → bonded DSL service good or bad?
You will get a C2000a or C2000T modem I believe. Just use your router as a AP not an extender and you will get better throughput. Thats a good sign, most people have a hard time getting CL to do bonded. I think you can do a three year contract for a reasonable amount.
I have pair bonded 40/5 on a residential account.
CenturyLink gave me a garbage Q2000 first, after several rounds and escalations I was able to get a C2000T and it’s been by far the best dsl modem I’ve ever used.
Now as far as the process, you will need a new modem that accepts two line inputs, also you will need two good pairs coming into one jack (if your in a house this should not be a problem)
My lines sync up at 20/2.5Mbps per pair, and I regularly test and download ~37/4.7 and it’s been rock solid for almost a year now. I’ll never be going back to cable after this connection
Also, you can put all the bonded modems in bridge mode no problem from my experiences.
Try to get a C2000T best Century Link/Qwest modem I have had to date for my 40/5 bonded service.
This is about my average.
