I have a Satellite connection - ‘fat’ pipe (5-15 Mbps) with high latency ~ 1 second and an ADSL connection (3.5Mbps) with low latency. In my mind, I can conjure up some fantastic balancing algorithm (without any knowledge, which is why it’s a fantasy) where the low latency of the ADSL is combined with the fat pipe of the satellite - so I can still browse a responsive web, but when I use Netflix or Youtube, I can benefit from from the fatter satellite pipe.
Having read stuff in here and the info available on the website, I have reached the conclusion that I can force particular services or destinations (such as Netflix) to use a specific WAN, but other than that, my best option is to use the satellite as an overflow for the DSL. I have an entry level router from TPLink where I can only implement a failover to satellite as their load balancing is based on bandwidth alone which ignores latency and doesn’t have features like overflow. I notice that Peplink 20s don’t benefit from latency routing either, but I think I can do without it so long as I can do as described with overflow and specific destination routing.
Have I missed something, or is that the best I can do really?
Thanks in advance
