I may be wrong, but I think it takes a special router to have a "hot" dual isp connection. Both signals have to be coordinated (aggregated into 1) to share the bandwidth transparently (called load-balancing ?) and is a bit too complicated for most of those handy little residental routers. See...
A much cheaper option is a router that has a built-in network modem that will automatically provide (at least) a dial-up backup connnection in the even that the BBand goes down.
In general, though, few really need an automatic full-time dual bband connection for fail-over safety. Those that do can usually afford the fancier load-balancing equipment to begin with.
Since you (or your organization) can evidently afford 2 highspeed connections (assuming you're paying for them) maybe simply purchasing a more expensive router like above would be the best option.
