The person that asked the question mentioned 2 mobile providers.

Of course his connection is going to suck, it's wireless.

The question is:

Can you use 2 mobile connections to get the best of the 2.

The first thing to try would be if he/she started 2 pings, would they both go bad at the same time. If so he/she doesn't have to try any of the tricks mentioned.

First of all, I doubt you'll find anything that already works on Windows.

So it would have to be something like Linux on both sides. So you'll need a Linux machine as a gateway if you want to use Windows.

Now that said, there are 2 things I've seen which are available for Linux:
- multipath-TCP could do this, but TCP is usually pretty bad as a tunneling protocol if you want good latency.
- a better way might be a routing protocol with a weight for the latency (=round-trip time) and with very fast convergence to be useful. Their is existing code and a IETF draft for babel(d):

That could work.

Well, who is currently in court with Microsoft about these patents ?:

Who is not on the OIN-list ?:

I do see HTC, but also no Huawei, ZTE, Acer, Viewsonic, Quanta or Compal *

I also see Google (thus Motorola ?), but I don't think Microsoft has a deal with them.

* they have a list here:

There are a whole bunch of reviews on YouTube, I've not seen this strange 10 seconds to load crap:

But it aint gonna be fast, see it loading the camera app (which isn't fast on the other phones I've seen, so it's a bit of a heavy app compared to most):

However you are going to paint it, someone made a bad choice with 128MB.

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing for money.
