Due to the fact that I live in a somewhat “rural area” (I used to live a mile away/1.5Km and had 200Mb service), my internet options are limited. There has been an advancement in the area where I can now obtain the internet using mobile 4G service. The only issue that I can see is that the service is capped. I work from home and can foresee surpassing the cap as I work within the entertainment business do a great deal downloading audio and video promotional material. My reason for adding the 4G service is that what I currently have is not stable enough, but the WiMax and DSL service that I have continuously disconnects due to bad weather, and the fact that everything is being shifted to fiber optics in the next few years. Until fiber gets here, I need a more reliable connection, because I can not waste hours a day to perform tasks online that should only take a fraction of my time. I will retain at least one of the two connections as a back up.
So my question is this would it make more sense just to designate one system on my network to perform the bulk of the uploads and downloads of larger files, and have that routed to the uncapped connection, or is there a way to route traffic above a certain bandwidth to one of the connections regardless of the system that is being used?
Thank you in advance for any assistance that might be provided.
