      Upgrades to stabilise and enhance your broadband connection.

      I recently had some problems with my line and sync speed dropping, noise margin problems. When trying to figure out what the problem was, I upgraded a few things which didn't cost much, but I feel like the line is much more stable.

      If you don't have these things then I highly recommend them.

      BT I-Plate is a filter for the NTE5 master socket. It deals with electrical interference that can cause noise on the line and slower sync speeds. Many people have seen improvements on their line when upgrading their socket with this filter.

      BT I-Plate (iPlate)

      Pro+ RJ11 - RJ11 ADSL 2+ cable. For when quality matters, the highest quality high speed RJ11 cable for connecting an ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+ modem to the telephone line. Really great cable of the highest quality.

      ADSL Nation LTD.

      Pro+ Installation Cable. For when quality matters, the highest quality shielded Pro+ high speed cable for ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+ extension wiring. Using high grade low loss twisted-pair cable, combined with foil shielding to reduce interference this cable ensures you will get the absolute best out of your broadband service.

      ADSL Nation LTD.

      Hope this is helpful to anyone having problems.

      Iplate is outdated, all the new master sockets being installed by BT come with it built in. Additionally a filtered faceplate does the same job as it does with the addition of being able to filter out the adsl signal.
      The Pro+ cable is good but Cat5e cable can do the job equally as well.

      Sure whatever works. I had an NTE5 socket, and just found out about the I-Plate, but if they have newer and better then that will be a better option.

      This for me has been great for improving stability. I would have liked to know about it sooner but only recently experienced problems, which I think was due to electrical interference.
