      Screw terminal socket?

      Hi

      This may sound like a really silly question but I am fitting a new telephone socket upstairs and wondered whether fitting a screw terminal socket instead of an IDC socket would affect my broadband connection in terms of speed? I wanted to put the socket in the middle of the current cable run so I presume it would just be a case of cutting the cable and joining like to like in the correct terminals?

      Thanks in advance

      Phil

      Screw terminals are fine. yes you cut the cable to suit and connect like for like.
      No questions are silly, if you dont know how are you to find out
