combining multiple dsl lines

I was wondering if any of you knew where I could get something that would take multiple dsl lines and combine them into a line with the combined bandwidth of the incoming dsl. I thought I had seen a hub like unit that could take a few dsl's on one side with a single output on the other, but now can't seem to find anything like that. Any references or ideas would be appreciated.

Basically what will happen is you will have more bandwith. If you want to have one machine with internet download distros etc all day long, but dont want to be lagged all day. This would be good. However, who in there right mind would fork out the extra 40 bucks a month just to have a little extra bandwith (as a home user ofcourse).

Useless for my interests. It wont speed up your internet, but give you more bandwith.

HUB DSL1------> Computer A then can do something not effecting B's internet performance
DSL2-----------> Computer B then can do something not effecting A's internet performance

I saw the router or hub you were talking about. Basically all that did was alternate what line it used. So for a single file it wouldn't speed anything up, unless you are able to connect multiple times to a server and download different portions of the file. Not sure if that is possible.

I realize it woiuldn't speed up individual downloads. I am looking at supplying a network with highspeed access so multiple computers would be connecting at the same time. The problem is I can't seem to find the product listed anywhere. So I'm really looking for a link to a manufacturers page or product review.
