I'm looking for a piece of hardware to connect to different types of ISPs, normal DSL, cable DSL and USB egde sturfstick to offer one Internet connection with a higher cumulated bandwidth. I'm pretty sure something like this exists, but I don't know how to call it or where I can find something like that.

That's called link aggregation, but with the added complexity of differing media types. Hope this helps in some manner.

It is link aggregation and one of the more popular technologies to achieve this at the carrier and higher-end networking level is via MLPPP (Multi-Link Point-to-Point Protocol).

Something like the Peplink Pepwave Max Mobile Router would accomplish what you're looking for.

If you want a cheap router to do it, you can buy a DD-WRT compatible one (I'm running an ASUS RT-N16 in the office, it's great!) and config it yourself
