Can I use a Cisco router to bind 2 ADSL connections

By alexperryuk ·
Our small 1 location company has suddenly had a dramatic growth spurt and now has 2 national branches and 1 international branch (in the past 3 months!).

I now face the task of linking all the computers at the different branches to our SBS 2003 network at head office.
My plan was to use a Cisco 837 router at each branch office, and form a number of site-to-site VPN connections to a Cisco router at the head office, thus enabling branch access to the SBS 2003 network.

The problem I face is that due to the location of the head office, my ADSL upstream bandwidth is limited to 256kbps max! And there are no plans for the phone line infrastructure to be upgraded. The transfer would just be too slow.

I wondered if any of the Cisco routers, or equivalent, would allow the use of 2 ADSL connections to produce an increased upstream bandwidth? Or is there any data compression technologies out there for use with low bandwidth connections?

All help is greatly appreciated.
