      In our tests we have seen no sync speed drop off using the 30m NTE2000 extension kit(along with one of BT's faceplates), ADSL is always site dependent, if you must have the router on an extension then they are just about the best kit out there at the moment. The 80B RF3's are also BT Openreach branded like the kits/faceplates!!

      So nte2000 extension kit is as good as plugging into master socket.
      Anyway as I previously mentioned, master socket would be in the small room and router plugged direct. Then I'll run two extensions in parallel for sky boxes and phone.
      I am finding difficult to decide which adsl filtered plate I should go for. There is review by NewsreadeR and stats are almost identical. So thats why it is difficult to decide.

      BT Openreach still use the UK manufactured NTE2000 & NTE2005, we think there is a good reason behind that....

      I disagree with your last comment RUNITDIRECT. When a company which has to generate profit, select a product, they consider the cost as well as the quality. BT is still using it because it is cost effective and of acceptable quality.
      And you'll also support this as it is one of your main product.

      I'm afraid you are wrong on both counts. BT still use it because it is the best quality filter on the market, it is NOT cost effective at all-the filters from others are over HALF the cost of the Pressac unit, & no, it is not one of our main products.

      Re: Help req. with Jn. Box and cable and wiring

      Well there are only two designs. Bt one and as you say the cheaper one. One by Tamar and XTE2005 are same design. Your discontinued cheaper version was clone of bt nte2005.
      So if you say out of two Bt nte2005 is better then fine. But it is not necessary. normally it is the quality of the components used. in this case voltage and amps are so low that even the cheapest components will last long. The only way one can be described better than the other is by looking at the performance and NewsreaderS review proves there is no difference. So if performance is same then which one would you chose? I'll go for cheaper one. Don't forget there is brand name cost added to the final price otherwise the price of bt filter should be even cheaper.

      I, personally, have used both the ADSL Nation XTE-2005 and the BT Openreach NTE-2000 faceplates and have to say I prefer the BT one. This is based purely on aesthetics but if it's good enough for BT it's good enough for me...

      well that is the personal choice of users. What I am trying to say here is that performance wise they are same, unless someone comes back after 2 or 3 years with different stats.
