Usually that only works with the cooperation of your ISP, and to be
honest, from what I heard, bonded adsl does not work that well. Most
ISP's have dropped it.
If what you want is intelligent use of mutliple ADSL connections then a
load balancing router/modem might be more up your alley. Most also
support intelligent failover, i.e switch connections to one line when
the other fails.
Draytek do a excellent number of them, though they are expensive and
tricky to configure, but very powerful. They also support 4G LTE modems
and sim cards.
The T-link TL-R480T+ is cheap and pretty good, supports aggregating up
to 4 WAN ports:
Note:Its a router not a modem - you'll also need a modem for each line,
which is then connected into the router.
