Bonding GigabitEthernet

On our 6504 - 12.2(33)SXH, we currently have a single connection to our ISP (GI1/1) and want to add another connection (GI1/2)  Is there a way to bond the two connections to form a single connection (a single pipe) to double the throughput?

Yes, you can use Etherchanel to bundle multiple links together.

have a look at this doc for examples:

Just be aware, when you use Etherchannel you increase your aggregate bandwidth but its behavior is not the same as a single pipe.  For instance, one flow across the Etherchannel will only use one link.  Two flows might, or might not, use both links of a dual Etherchannel.
