      As an idea, if you are considering getting SBUF, then BTO will automatically fit a new NTE5 socket and the vDSL filtered faceplate for you.

      Visit the Sky website and see what speeds and the availability is for you at your home. Whilst your exchange has been upgraded, not everyone can get SBUF.

      Also, in a previous post you mentioned I should fit an external NTE (fairly sure this is what you meant but not positive)....is this still necessary and is there any particular method you would suggest? I'm sure i'm capable of doing all of this but never had to do it in the past
      Sorry my previous post was not too clear. I meant if you did not have an External NTE you should fit and NTE, that is why I linked to one. If you do not intend to get fibre very soon, you should fit an NTE5 with a filtered faceplate and plug the router into the RJ11 port. You do not then need a filter on any of your other sockets. Provided your external wiring is OK, you should get 4-5 Mb.

      As above, if you are not planning on fibre then fit an NTE5 master socket along with a filtered faceplate. The new BT VDSL faceplate is giving the best results on all connections in our experience. Thankfullly you don't have an XNTE, they have been dropped now anyway with BTO engineers told to use jelly crimps to bypass them!
