I know that some of us suffer from bandwidth poverty, including myself. The funny thing is that I have the resources of a 3rd world country, yet I'm right smack in the middle of a 1st world country (Canada). So... I'm wondering, how many of you have had to get creative with more unconventional methods to be able to bring the bandwidth to you, and how do you do it?

I used to use MLPPP, which was fine enough for what it was, but still lacked in many ways. Sometimes video streams on the Android box were all but impossible, even though I had the 13 mbit / 3.25 mbit speeds on a speed test. I have since switched over to Bonded DSL and installed it alongside the existing MLPPP installation so that I can still reboot the modems, check on line stats, etc. without having to leave the trailer. I still have to build a better power supply, as that part of the network was also done on the fly, but it's WAY more organized and much more cat proof than it was. Yes... Unfortunately, cats are part of the reason why I had to get creative, even with how I attached the bonder to the wall. It does not have keyholes on the back of the unit, and according to the contract with my ISP, I am not allowed to modify the bonder, the modems they provided (which I don't use), or the cables that they provided (so I use my own). My cheap solution was steel strapping that I could pick up pretty cheap from the local hardware store.

Here's my new setup:

Anyone seen anything like this before? Had to use something similar? Have a creative solution of your own for your area?
