      My bad i did't clarify... It is definitely a shielded adsl cable, no issue there.

      @Isitme: yeah that would make sense. Not sure why it was wired like that in the old socket, probably because back then they used all extensions for phones. Now i have no way of knowing which are the main wirings and which are the extensions. As i'm not using the extensions, i don't think it'll be worth trying to find out... Unless you think that's really costing me a lot of speed...?

      You could be loosing speed, but more importantly if the extensions are not filtered they are liable to pick up interference, not necessarily all the time, but enough to cause problems, even if they are not used.

      You can carefully remove one of the wires and if you loose dial tone, that is the incoming wire, so remove the other pair and connect them to the 2 and 3 terminals on your faceplate. If you don't loose dial tone, vice-versa.
