      My Master Socket - Help!

      Hey all,

      I have recently been contacting sky asking for a manual line speed adjustment i now downstream at 16,900kbps they have told me to check my internal equipment if i still feel i can go faster and i have came across what deems to be a very messy install on my master socket here is a picture;



      ^, As you can see im permantly using my test socket and i do need to rewire it with my IDC tool, but after reading a post on here id like to ask this question.

      Would purchasing this be better to fit and completly replace my current socket rather than rewiring my already fitted socket?

      Thanks

      If you are using the Test socket at the moment, you are not going to get much more speed no matter what you fit. I think you may be misunderstanding the item. It is a faceplate only, not a full box. Buy this and fit it in place of your existing faceplate. You can then connect up your extensions with no interference.
