Two cell plans in primary: how do they get used?

Max Transit duo w/Tmobile and ATT. If I put both in Priority 1 - how does sharing happen? When I do that, Tmobile seems to get all the traffic even though in my location, tmobile sucks compared to AT&T. When I drop to Priority 2 - it doesn’t get used unless AT&T drops out. None of the examples I can find in Youtube show putting two connections in Priority 1.


You establish how to do the sharing using outbound policies. There are a number of them, but the simplest is probably “Weighted Balance”. If you set the weight for each of the two cellular connections to 1 then traffic will be directed alternatingly to the two connections. You may weigh it differently (e.g., 2 + 1 + 1 in the example below), if you want to send more traffic to one of the connections than to the others.

Weighted balance is not very dynamic - if one connection varies in quality then the policy does not respond to the changing circumstances. But it is a start.
