      How many microfilters does Sky supply these days?

      Hello

      After much messing around, my broadband at my new house is finally going live next Tuesday. When we switched to Sky Broadband at my old house, the router kit Sky sent included three microfilters.

      Haven't had our new router through yet from Sky, but was wondering if they still provide three, or if they have cut back?

      Either way, will need to buy more (we have 6 sockets in the house) but would be handy to know if I need to go and buy three or more.

      Cheers
      Chris

      usually 3, but have heard of some not getting any!!!

      as for filters, assuming you have an NTE5 get a filtered faceplate and then you don't need ANY filters ever again!!!

      Eeek - but at the same time, not massively surprised - strikes me as the sort of thing that would be reduced (or even cut altogether) in order to cut costs.

      Am looking at the filtered faceplate approach, but don't fancy trying to rewire the socket. With five extensions, there's plenty of wire to worry about.
