My BT Smart Hub is connected via a filter to the Master Socket (which is the one with a line down the middle and 2 screws to take out to get to the test socket). BT engineer installed this master socket recently.
There aren't 2 screws on a NTE5C.

Agreed, the face plates clip of, it was designed so that people without any tools can gain access to the test socket, which makes sense.

I am not a fan of them due to you can knock the face plates off too easy.

I hope they don't fit them for FTTP that get FVA tongue I know there was talk of having the FV Face plates made, but not seen one yet.

Please don't correct me with incontrovertible statements of fact wink.

Yes - I didn't think of that blush.

I unscrewed the face plate of the BT Master Socket and the telephone ceased to work. There were wires from the faceplate to the main body of the Master Socket.

That's good smile.

Uhhh????

Are you sure they didn't just go to get to some exit point hidden behind the main body? (Don't go unscrewing the main body!)

They "might" be referring to using the same cable going into the master socket, but a different pair returning back.

Ours uses one pair from the BT80 (i.e. living room) to our master socket (hallway) and then the filtered phone line for the main phone use the other pair to go back to the BT80 and then to our phone base.

BT did it that way many years ago when we originally had the NTE5A installed which saves on the amount of cables.

That's possible. Which would be fine.

It depends on how good the cable is and the amount of twists the pairs have.

I have seen some cheap twisted pair cables that had hardly any twists, so noise got partly onto the other pair, granted this was very high speed over higher frequency than what vDSL uses.

If its legit CW1308 cable they should be fine.
