Channel Bonding ADSL – 144Mbps

Channel Bonding
Channel bonding is a method used in networking to increase reliability or increase throughput on a connection. By combing 2 or more channels of data together you can reach faster speeds, or decrease downtime due to the second channel taking over when the first dies. Ambit Broadband have released information on their channel bonding cable modem which allows you to connect 3 ADSL connections to it allowing for a current maximum download speed of 144Mbps and a maximum upload speed of 30Mbps. This is a nice increase on the standard low XX speed figures we are used to seeing. Just remember that you will need to update your network if you want to achieve these speeds as a number of Ethernet ports are still limited to 100Mbps although newer connections can accept up to 1Gbps.

Hanaro is currently the only ISP who will be accepting this ADSL modem. Hanaro is a Korean ISP. With this technology unleashed you can no doubt expect it to hit this side of the world in some shape or form. The speed is there… but lets hope the infrastructure can keep up with it.
