Made no difference
Using this faceplate made no difference. Before I was using the ADSL dongle splitter on a wire. I am still getting a download rate of 0.3 to 0.4 Mb/s.
May once have been a rebadged ADSL Nation filter but doesn't look like it now. Looks like a surge protector (when the NTE5 already has one), 3 capacitors and two resistors. Knocked my connection down 1Mbps :-( As it is in a heat sealed package, unable to return as you have to "break in", but not worth £24.99 - the components along must be under £5 and made things worse.
You can only use this product if you attach the ADSL modem to it. If you plug an ADSL modem into a extension socket then you cannot use this product as it removes the ADSL part of the signal from all extensions running from it.
Good while it lasted, but... Buying one of these was easier (and cheaper) than getting BT to replace the original (faulty) filter, unfortunately it only lasted 3 weeks and then died, currently have a plug-in filter and a master socket with no face-plate, and the hassle of trying to get a replacement
I was very dubious about this, however when connected to a marginal (1.1 Mbps) ADSl system it imediately increased download speed by 25%. Removing it put the speed back. For tech minded: Device ifnores Bell Circuit from BT master plate. Instead filters voice circuit and then recreates bell circuit from the filtered circuit. HF ADSL signal therefore isolated from bell circuit. Both voice and ADSL cable extensions available via punchdown block (tool provided). There are many unauthorised Bell Circuit mods on web - this is probably a better solution if a little expensive hence only 4*
What a great device this is. I live right on the limit of ADSL distance range so the signal is poor. I used this to replace a BT I-plate, which gives a significant signal improvement anyway, and dongle type filters after one of them failed. What I didn't realise until I came to install the device is that it can filter extension sockets as well so I have no dongle type filters in the house now. Both ADSL and telephone signals were improved.
I had dire download speeds with the standard BT master socket faceplate and Dongle filter. This has improved them 400%! BUY ONE NOW!
Bought one of these for my parents, whose internet has been awful for ages. Replaced the BT master plate with this one and plugged in their router and connection went from 0.5 to 2.5. I was expecting a bit of an improvement because their house is big and has old wiring, but not this much. Highly recommended !
Very Good nice and neat works very well, seems to have improve speed... Easy to fit would buy again. much better than the inline type of filters.
Best filter by far, easy to fit and covers all my extension points. Helped my internet stability. Will use this filter as first choice when I need to filter another incoming line.
