Is it possible for us to relieve bandwidth issues by having a T1 and Cable combined, if so, how?

We have a 50 person company on a T1. If ONE person decides to download a big file it saturates our network and everyone else slows down. We are looking at going to more hosted solutions so this is only going to get worse.
Is it possible to get say a 5mb cable connection and somehow combine them so that it greatly increases our bandwidth but allows us to retain the current T1 for stability reasons? Ideally this would mean that if the cable modem service goes down that we still have the T1 and that it's close to invisible to end users (except decreased bandwidth).
Is there hardware that I can do this with easily?
We currently use a T1 and it's connected through our Netopia router/vpn/firewall box.
