      You could do away with that junction box and replace it all a filtered box, but thats BT's property.

      What you could do is get BT to change it to a master socket and then install filtered sockets on any extensions you may have.

      BT should do this for free (but do check on the phone with them before you get them to do it) let them know you have no master socket to test from but you seem to having phone problems (would not mention BB)
      when BT did mine they did not remove the juction box (but did disconect the extentions from the box and fitted a proper master socket in the front room)

      if that is the first socket your wiring comes to (after the junction box) then it will be the master, but by the picture you have this is an old stlye which does not have a test socket behind

      Correct thats the only phone socket i have in the house, the house was made in 1939 so my guess is the phone system is pretty old?

      you would need the NTE5 master socket to be able to use the ADSL nation face plate,
      i would ring BT and say you seem to be having problems with your line like noise/crackles/ hiss (again, do not mention broadband), they may ask you to try the test socket and you can let them know you do not have one, tell them about the junction box and other socket (and make out like they look realy old flakey)

      once bt have fitted a new master socket you can then fit the ADSL face plate to it

      Cheers mate u've been great. I did a Line test on BT's website they said they'de run some test and ring me up - i assume they only do this when you have a problem anyway. If they make me try my TEST socket i'll go with your story
