Does anyone out there have any comment on some of the new, bonded pipe

are saying that multiple lines can be aggregated to act as one, virtual

Seems possible, but I haven't looked at the white papers on it.

My question is:  will the ISPs support multiple sessions from the same
account (name/password) without charging N X the number of lines per hour?
If yes, then these like like cheap alternatives to ISDN.  If not, is there
any benefit to aggregating?

From the Trancell documentation I saw, they do seem to indicate that
you'll most likely need one account per channel.  I also know that since
most ISPs make it a part of their acceptable use policy that you only get
one dialin at a time unless your paying for different service, that you
probably won't get away with doing multiple logins for long.
