Good day everyone,
I work from home and I need a constant and reliable connection.
Some background: I currently have a fiber connection that manages 640mbit down and 260 up. However, each time the distribution panel is touched, I am offline. Tech support … need to phone in, and the ISP sends someone in about 3-7 working days to fix it. This happens about 4-6 times a year. Another ISP pulled its fiber, my neighbor has it, it manages about 300-700 download and around 600-700mbit upload, but since it’s a recent service in the area I have no idea about reliability. I leave in EU, the services are costing about 7-8 Euro each, so pretty cheap, even here, so why not … beside the extra upload would speed up large dataset transfers. As a 3rd option I have is LTE, from provider #1 (it was mandatory to have two services, so I have the fiber and the mobile SIM as a package), which manages 30-40mbit down and about the same upload.
My question is, which of the balancers would be the right choice to have both fiber connections with the LTE as a backup connection. As I am not familiar with peplink products, the router throughput advertised (less then 1Gbit), with firewall and QoS disabled can any balancers max out the combined 1Gbit down/upload? (a simple NAT is sufficient for me and I don’t care about assigning the exterior IPs into the network - it is ok that the router has it).
Thanks in advance.
