The feature that you are referring to is known as PPP Multilink. See the following URl for more information -

Be forewarned though. Unless your ISP guarantees that you will be able to multilink ,sometimes you will be able to get that bigger virtual pipe and other times you will not. I ran into this with UUNet ISDN lines. They sold me on 128k of bandwidth but I came to find out I can only multilink when both calls end up on the same bundle on the ISPs side. Sometimes it did and sometimes it didn't. When it didn't I was stuck with 2 64k calls that I could only run data through, not voice as planned. If your ISP supports multi-chassis multilink then this will not be an issue as you will be able to multilink no matter where your calls end up at.
