      I think the VDSL ones work for ADSL as well, there was a company selling them but I can't rememeber where I saw it.
      ok no problem
      cheers

      vdsl = fibre optic broadband lines.

      The latest filtered faceplate designed for fibre will also be fine for normal adsl (copper line) connections.

      The VDSL plate is also easier to fit as it does not require any wires to be moved. It slips into the socket in the same way as an iPlate.

      The 2 wires screwed on to the backplate are the main incoming wires. The 3 wires attached to the faceplate lead to your extensions. These are the ones which have to be filtered.

      STBs = Set top boxes, ie Sky HD box etc.

      sorry to sound a bit thick...this still all new to me.....
      if you get the version were you have to connect the wires, the one right side/part, plugs straight into the test socket, then the three wires get connected to the left other side/socket ?? as in my case as you say the extensions.

      if the VDSL version doesnt need you to connect any wires, how does that work.
      again the one left side would plug straight into the test socket like the iplate does, but how is is the other side kept seperate from the test socket...bit hard to explain without any pics,..hope you can understand what I mean, is it kept separate by some kind of circuitry ?

      is one version better then the other, I dont mind having to get the tool to connect the wires if needed, just would like the better of the two if there is a better version.
      sky tech have said they are going to ring me this week, so I would like to tell them I am about to buy one, so can they hold off about resetting the DLM until I get one etc.

      The older type replaces the existing lower faceplate and has two ports, one for ADSL and one for the Phone. The wires are swapped from the old faceplate to the new one. To do this you require a krone IDC tool.

      The VDSL version which is all round superior to the old one fits in the same as the iPlate which has to be removed. The filtering is done by circuity. This type of plate has only one port for the ADSL, the existing port being used for the telephone. As shown in the photos here - BT VDSL NTE5 Faceplate - VDSL I Plate

      The VDSL plate is superior in all ways.

      so with the one in the link,
      does it still have two sockets on the front ? one for the router, and then one for your phone ?
      also as you have said about the three wires which are for my extension (which we have never used ) would I need to connect these to the VDSL one or just leave as is.

      1) Remove existing original faceplate, leaving extensions intact.
      2) Remove iplate - you won't need this anymore.
      3) Fit VDSL faceplate to master socket.
      4) Fit original faceplate to VDSL faceplate.

      The top (VDSL) part provides the connection for the router.
      The bottom (original) part provides the connection for the phone.
