Routing Traffic through second broadband line

By stevenmcclay ·
Hi there, we are considering adding a second broadband line to our office. Is there a way of routing different traffic through each line?
Say email traffic on one line and internet access on the other.

Not just upgrade your current connection instead of installing a new line would this not better meet your needs, not install work to be done, no down time and so on?

BT are not planning to upgrade our exchange anytime soon so we are limited to 8Mb ASDL and would like a faster connection than this.

Strictly speaking you are not tied to BT ...

Have you given any thought to switching your service to a 'faster' ISP ?

Have you checked how much of the 8MB you are actually (truly) getting? Sometimes when you make noises about thinking of leaving BT in favour of a competitor, you can suddenly notice an improvement in your available bandwidth.

Have a check running an online throughput scan:

Several scans over a few days, allowing for fluctuations given the time of day, then you should have a better idea of what 'service' BT is actually providing.

The best name to drop when murmuring about moving to a different ISP would be VIRGIN.

I use Virgin but do not get paid by them to promote their products - more's the pity. :)
