Here is another option for a dual WAN supported hardware.  This can then run pfSense and you can configure Multi-WAN for you dual ISP's for failover.

So you have 2 separate circuits of 60 / 15 ?
Is this cable modem as I don't know of many ADSL circuits that have that spec.

If it's cable ,then you can use bonding :
