      NTE-2005 or XTE-2005

      Hi

      Quick question - I've plugged my router into the engineers socket and get a 3-4mb improvement, so I want to buy a new faceplate to

      a. tidy it up
      b. for speed

      I'm on sky max on the gosport exchange.

      I unsure of which face plate to purchase the XTE-2005 or NTE-2005?

      Any advise?

      Thanks in advance

      Andy

      Hi Monkey.
      You need the XTE-2005 filter faceplate from ADSL Nation.
      The NTE-2005 is the same as the BTv1 and this is also a very good faceplate, but the XTE-2005 is reported to have better performance on ADSL2+ so it is the better one to go for.
      Just to throw a spanner in the works, I have used both types on my line,which is ADSL2+ and they performed very well, with no differance in speed etc.
      In the end the choice is yours, but if I were you, it would be the XTE-2500, as it looks better!!

      Yes and also your upstream is 764. If you had been on max with ADSL then the upstream would be 768

      Well I got the face plate, but I slightly disappointed as it seems to have slowed things down
