      VDSL master socket?

      Due to problems with my line/connection with EE I have recently had two BT engineers visit.

      The first installed a new master socket, but I was left with using a microfilter.

      The second installed a new faceplate, which had a connection for my router and another connection for the phone line.

      Is there anything that would give an appreciable difference in terms of speed? I anticipate moving back to Sky and getting my line test happening soon, so I'd like everything to be as good as possible before that.

      I would be willing to install a new master socket if it existed and would make my line better, alternatively, I'd install a new faceplate if there was one that was better than the BT supplied one.

      Thanks,

      James

      You will not get anything better than the BT fitted vDSL filter.
