      ADSL Faceplate filter.

      I have recently read that if you fit an ADSL Filter faceplate to the BT master socket then you can dispense with micro filters and probablt get an increase in download and upload speeds. Can one of the techies confirm this and is it as easy to fit as they say. I am a bit of a sceptic when someone tells me something is easy to fit!! Many thanks.

      Re: ADSL Faceplate filter.

      Do you have fixed phone extensions? If you do you will benefit from fitting and using a filtered faceplate. All that is involved is removing the existing faceplate and replacing it with the new one. The extension wires being removed from the old plate and fixed on the same numbered terminals on the new one. This guide explains how it should be done -

      It is worthwhile buying a disposable tool to make the new connections. - ADSL Nation LTD.

      If you do not have extensions, then apart from cosmetics and a better filter, a filtered faceplate will make no difference.
