Broadband bonding question

So I'm moving to a area that limits me to 1.5 mbps a dsl connection "being that its so far out from the dslam" and I have seen service like http://speedify.com/desktop/ that lets you combine more than one isp connection to double your speed. From what I understand it creates a vpn connection for each ip you connect with back to the co's server and it gets recombined into one connection for faster speeds.
So what I was wondering is where I'm moving from I have 300/25 service, Would it be possible for me to setup a pfsense box and do some kinda vpn setup for both connections like speedify does that way I don't have to pay another co? I already plan on keeping my service on at my old location to help my mom out. Just didn't if I could combine the speeds from two dsl modems and have a pfsense box on both ends to combine the connections.

It should be possible but I think you might need multiple public IP addresses on your VPN server, so that you can specify which WAN interface to use to reach each server.

If your ISP will support it pfSense will bond connections using MLPPP.
Ive used this with my ISP for a number of years now and it works good. Just one WAN address.
