Rated 4 out of 5 by from The ADSL plug-in faceplate filter won't improve your connection unless you're existing filter is faulty or there is (significant) local interference. But it does remove the need for an external dongle, which means it can't get kicked out, and it looks a lot neater. I was told my connection couldn't be improved because it was already three times better than the reported average for the area! Read the instructions before you tear out your old one because there are a variety of standards for the standard for connecting extensions to the master socket so you need to know what your existing wiring is

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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*

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purchased this product today, upon unpacking i noticed that this product is the ADSL Nation XTE-2005 (de-branded) once fitted which took no more than 5 minutes, i noticed a drop in SNR of about 2dB which is great.. great product worth every penny even if its just to tidy up your master socket. Thank You

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed 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 Ј24.99 - the components along must be under Ј5 and made things worse.

Hi, How easy is the wiring exercise if I am replacing a single master socket with this two socket version? Cheers, Steve

Asked by: lyally
It would depend on your level of wiring knowledge. If you have any doubts we would recommend seeking the help of a qualified electrician.
