      The only time I might consider keeping the VDSL faceplate would be if I were to move to a new place knowing that Sky, as an example, is able to offer Self-Install and I wouldn't get a VSDL faceplate from BTO or Sky.
      Maybe at cross purposes here. I think they are referring to the BTO Modem, not the faceplate.

      Just checking my ideas but would an ADSL microfilter work for VDSL on self-install?

      Yes, there are cases reported here where the installing engineer has not bothered to change a filtered faceplate to a vDSL plate. It may not be so efficient but it will still work. I believe the SR102 for fibre is being sent out with standard plug in filters, same as the ADSL ones.
