      Are my speeds correct????

      These are my latest stats and as if i turn off or unplug filter from faceplate sometimes reconnects slower speed.

      When i spoke to sky person they said that my line was set or synced at 5472 and would not be changed manually at there end but as u can see that speed only lasted 1 day now its 5216 and looks stable to i am scared to disconnect to try in test socket etc incase it drops my speeds again.

      Was thinking of fitting filtered faceplate but the changes are usually only mnor in improvements in test socket so not sure its worth the hassle as i-plate when fitted reduced my speeds so its a case of once bitten when it comes to messing around with things

      your sync speed will change just switch off router or unplug from socket will see this change checking from test socket should give your best reading so use socket dont worry about sync rate more important is better attenuation and margins as for sky (person) line can been changed manually if needed but only by cst agent but only if better margins than current reading

      You have not yet been put on DLM and you will be at some time or other. It would be better if you sort out your wiring before it is run or you may find your speed drops quite a lot.

      If you have extensions wired to your master socket, then it is definitely worth fitting a filtered faceplate. In my opinion and iPlate is a waste of money, as you have discovered. For one it does not help if you have a modern NTE5 fitted as this already includes a ring suppressor and it does nothing to isolate internal wiring, which can act like an aerial, picking up interference.
