Multi-line modem

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but I wanted to get the right eyes on this question.

Windows Server 2003 - Dell Poweredge.  We have a data provider that still lives in the stone ages and exchanges data over a dialup modem.  The problem is that each request/response takes on the order of 15-20 seconds and our volume is getting to a point where we need multiple lines.  What options are there?  In the age of VOIP, I was hoping we could do this over a network card, and use a half dozen virtual phone numbers to send out our requests.  Otherwise, it looks like we'd have to find a multi-line modem.  Any ideas?

i highly doubt that VoIP would come into play on this one...if the data currently gets transfered by phone line then VoIP isnt really going to help.....

I guess I don't understand why VOIP wouldn't work - it can make voice calls to a regular land line which is all a standard modem really does.  I'm just looking for a multi-line VOIP modem.

VoIP the purpose of it is to use it for voice (cost savings), you can not bond calls and have have a big badnwith with VoIP, on what i have research there is no modem for analgo lines capable of bonding calls.

Here is a link that can help you out.

Or try setting up a VPN tunnel, it would be  better.

Could you not just add more modems? Very inexpensive...
