a.k.a. Multilink PPP
A protocol standard that provides higher Internet access speeds and greater bandwidth. Multilink uses two modems to connect to the Net simultaneously, at double the speed of a single modem. It requires two or more modems, a phone line, a dial-up account for each, and a PC running either Windows 98 (or higher) or Windows NT; also, your ISP must have the necessary hardware and software to support this service. It was originally designed for ISDN connections.
