      If it is the only socket on the line there will be little to be gained by changing it. Fitting a new type socket is only an advantage where there are extensions hardwired into it. If you are running plug in extensions from it, make sure that these are plugged into the filter and not direct to the socket. This assumes the router is plugged in to the same filter and not somewhere on the extension.

      There's no extensions, I suspect it's as old as the ark though.

      I've just taken a closer look at things, and we have a cable coming out from under the property up the front wall to a box on the outside of the house with an old BT logo (the T with the 2 dots on the right) which has a cover which slides on from the top and has a single screw at the bottom with a piece of cord so the cover plate can't be lost.

      From this there is a breakout cable around the side of the house that then comes in through the wall into the lounge to the socket I spoke of, so there is definitely no hidden master socket or something I'm unaware of.
