120 a month? You'll quite easily get 2Mb symmetric DSL for that... Try
V21.co.uk or something... Try a wireless DSL router too... They're quite
handy!

okay...

Well we are setting a budget of about 120 a month for a net connection
(lots of people in the flat).

Anyone suggest a better solution for us?

If my knowledge is correct, you can use something called channel bonding,
but you have to do some weird stuff... Almost all routers only support one
connection as specified. Assuming that you are using lots of traffic of
little files (not big files) then you COULD do it... But to be honest, I'd
just ask the ISP to bond them. Look into using a linux router project box
thingy, typically something that can do load balancing as you say... I
believe FREESCO can do it, although don't quote me on it.

If I had three 1mb connections I could connect them all up to a linux
router... right?

Well could I then load balance the usage across the three lines?
