      I've got one of these attached. I presumed it was to attach/join an old cut wire to a new wire, some sort of connector/bridge. Doesn't seem to effect my speed but i dont know that for sure.

      Hi all, I just thought I'd give you an update.

      I spotted a BT engineer sat in his white van this morning down the road so I asked him what the black "sausage shaped" thing was.

      Basically he said it was a kind of splitter. He said that the cable from the telegraph pole is capable of carrying 2 lines. He said that in the future if I required a second line it could just be connected to this instead of adding a second wire from the pole. Inside he said it was just full of grease and they were only invented a couple of months ago and replaced the previous style which did the same thing.
