      OP, if the speed you get via the test socket is the same as the front faceplate then your socket is OK(sometimes they fail so you see a massive drop when using the front socket).
      the speed is about the same in the test socket than in the faceplate, but on my picture 3 the there is no wiring to the faceplate should i just leave it like that or dosent it afect it what so ever

      If you have no extensions you will have no wires on the faceplate. I think the wires sticking out have originally been connected to the other socket.

      Re: Master socket

      If that is the case then assuming you have no other sockets in the house off this number(so NOT wired off this socket but from elsewhere?) then you can do nothing to improve your speed. A filtered faceplate gives centralised ADSL filtering (useful if you plan to install more extensions & a more convenient neater setup).
