      Cool Re: ADSL Faceplate Filters - SkyUser Reviews

      Update: It's been just over 20 days since I fitted the Tamar Faceplate and its still not rebooted.

      SNR (dB): 8.0 14.0
      Attn(dB): 36.0 23.0
      Pwr(dBm): 19.8 0.8
      Max(Kbps): 9184 1184
      Rate (Kbps): 8096 416

      Total time = 1 days 23 hours 52 min 29 sec
      SF = 101613988
      CRC = 7286
      LOS = 0
      LOF = 0
      ES = 4469

      As I stated in my previous post, I used to get about 1500 CRC errors a day
      and the router never stayed for more than about 9 days without rebooting.

      Well, awaiting MAC key from Sky Giving O2 a try, I'm on O2 mobile so I'll get a discount and I've just signed up to TopCashBack so get a bit more.
      I've joined the O2user site and noted a lot of familiar Skyuser names.
      The final nail in the coffin was the limit on Mid usage!

      Thumbs up Re: ADSL Faceplate Filters - SkyUser Reviews

      Hi

      I have tested my socket as per the instructions shown in the link and these are my results.

      Before
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 11261 kbps 945 kbps
      Line Attenuation 24.5 db 15.6 db
      Noise Margin 13.1 db 15.5 db

      After
      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 11262 kbps 945 kbps
      Line Attenuation 24.5 db 15.4 db
      Noise Margin 13.3 db 16.1 db

      As you can see there is not much real difference. However you have also not included what you were getting before you fitted the various filters when you did your test as to show the consumer what real benefits there are to gain with each one. So is there any real benefit in me getting one as there is no difference in my test?

      Do your tests show that Austin Taylor ADSL faceplate is the better choice for offering improvement? But then again I am missing the all important before router stats.

      Cheers.

      Re: ADSL Faceplate Filters - SkyUser Reviews

      If you are showing no difference between the Test socket and the faceplate, there is nothing to be gained from fitting a filtered faceplate, apart from appearance . Either you have no extensions or your wiring is very good. If you have extensions, check that they are dead when the faceplate is removed.

      The amount you can gain depends entirely on the individual installation. It can vary from none, in your case to several Mbs.

      Spot on. If you have poor extension wiring you can see a very good increase with a filtered faceplate/NTE5 with bell wire filter. Personally i always fit a faceplate as it is much nicer than having a filter dangling from the socket.

      Re: ADSL Faceplate Filters - SkyUser Reviews

      I've read the complete chain as I'm in the market for an ADSL faceplate filter. Given that the discussions started a good few years ago, is the BT/Openreach NTE 2005 still considered to be the best option or are there better/newer products now available that I should consider?

      Very many thanks in advance for any input provided.

      Re: ADSL Faceplate Filters - SkyUser Reviews

      run-IT-direct now have a vDSL filtered faceplate in stock. This works perfectly well with ADSL and FTTC connections.

      BT/Openreach VDSL/ADSL Premium Faceplate

      Dave posted elsewhere on this forum that early reports indicate that people are able to squeeze a little more speed out of it than from their older filtered faceplates.

      A couple of advantages it has over the standard filtered faceplates are that you don't need an IDC tool and should you upgrade at a later date to FTTC, you already have the correct faceplate installed.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms

      Re: ADSL Faceplate Filters - SkyUser Reviews

      We've had one customer report 1mb increase over an NTE2000!! Now, I'm not sure if the old NTE2000 was 100% OK as that seems like one heck of an increase but we've had other reports of an increase of 0.5mb!! Either way it is the latest faceplate & the only one approved for VDSL AND ADSL connections.
