Hi,

you can't do it without another mikrotik router at the other end of your link.  If you have a mikrotik router in some offsite location like a high bandwidth datacentre or something, you could create eoip links across each of those different ISPs and then bond the eoip links.

otherwise, you can use load balancing - which is a different technique to make use of multiple links:

meverest is correct. You simply cannot "Bond" those connections. In order to do that you would have to control the routers DSLAMs used by the ISP back in their network "cloud" and of course they cannot give you access to those so bonding is out of the question. however the idea of Load balancing can often help if you have seperate services you can associate with the seperate connections via port or IP association.

I guess a better question is what is the main goal besides a potential larger bandwidth?
