      Re: New vDSL ADSL Faceplate Filter

      Is that a phone socket on the top part of the faceplate?

      No, that is the DSL port, it works like an I Plate so the phone socket is the lower half of the NTE5.

      Should add, there may be two IDC connections for an ADSL extension-undecided as yet.

      Re: New vDSL ADSL Faceplate Filter

      I just wondered what it was. From the pictures it looks like the top part of the faceplate will cover it when it is put on. I am probably seeing it from the wrong perspective. I assume these will be fitted when the new fibre cable is put in place.

      It will look like an I plate when fully installed.....



      With the DSL port on the very top part. Due to be rolled out this summer, already on test in London & Cardiff.

      Re: New vDSL ADSL Faceplate Filter

      Thanks for posting m8 - can anyone advise what actually Openreach need to do when connecting to the local boxes, is all, part or any of the cable replaced and whilst this socket goes in and if the cabling is replaced, what difference in thickness is it.

      Thanks.

      The copper cable from the green cabinet will remain in place; it is the exchange side cable that is being complemented with a fibre overlay.
      If you are on about the internal telephone cable, I doubt Openreach would replace any of it, they would just fit the VDSL plate and leave it at that.

      Re: New vDSL ADSL Faceplate Filter

      This is in fact very similar to a normal filter faceplate, the differance being that it can be fitted without disconnecting any extension wiring, just like an I-Plate and is a bit cheaper to make as it makes use of the NTE-5 faceplate. This will make it very easy for end users to fit one FTTC services become wires only, that is you do the install in your home yourself, and Openreach do the cab.
      I also think, and I have not taken one apart so I dont know for sure, that the ring line is used from the master, instead of being created by the filter itself, so it would be essential that this is only used with an Openreach NTE-5 as its faceplate has a ring line filter.
      If this is so, and you do not have an Openreach master, then you would have to use a normal filter faceplate. It may also contain a No3 RF filter to reduce any noise on normal telephony, caused by the BB kit being much closer to the end user, in the street cab.

      When it comes to extensions for BB, then it will prob be the BT plug in extension kit, or you could use an exsisting faceplate filter with DSL extension connections.
