Bonding won't work without the ISP side being specifically configured
for it.  Think of incoming packets -- they will only go to one
IP address at the ISP, and thus only arrive on one cable modem.

You might be able to transmit over both interfaces, but even there you
will run into problems.  Most cable systems are very agressive about
looking for mismatched source IP addresses.
