Any bonding mode will utilize a single link in such case.
The 'catch 22' for active-active bonding is that you can utilize more
that one link for egress traffic (assuming multiple receivers), but
ingress traffic will be the same on all links.

What you need is https://www.multipath-tcp.org/ . Or buy 10Gbps NICs,
they are relatively cheap these days.
