Multiple tun loadbalancing question

Also, may be obvious to point out, but all (3) connections "must" be from the same provider.  In the lab you could MAYBE get a stable/usable connection from multiple providers (with just ppp or 'x' encap) by splitting the requests on the egress side - but it's highly unlikely in the real world.  In most cases the traffic load is asymmetrical and heavily biased towards ingress traffic, so even if you could get it to "work" - it wouldn't provide much benefit.

Just curious, what provider are you using?
