BT Faceplate Mk3


[link to this post]
 
Considering replacing my ADSLNation XTE-2005 faceplate filter with a BT one. Does the BT Mk3 have filtered extensions. Although trying the test socket with a different filter hasnt really improved things on my line with all the extensions disconnected?

The Mk3 has filtered extension connectors on the back of the faceplate, similar to the XTE-2005, and on the filter plate itself A/B connectors for an unfiltered extension, again similar to the XTE-2005. If that's what you want.

You do of course need a faceplate for it!

But they'll fit a Mk4 frown.

New back box at 22 quid then plus 184 and 44 base charge and wiring charge.

Question is if I replace the ADSLNation Plater with a BT Mk3 will the BT bod insist on a MK4?

It's a very different beastie. NTE5C IIRC.

See my edited post, could be quite an expensive do if a BT bod insists on Mk4.

I don't know. And although you can legitimately fit a Mk3 interstitial plus a faceplate you cannot legitimately replace the wall unit. Which is what you would have to do to get rid of a Mk4.

I would be fitting a Mk3 + faceplate, (you may still have your original faceplate from pre-XTE-2005), and resisting a Mk4 replacing it. As it would be "BT" kit the engineer is less likely to insist than with the XTE-2005.

Maybe Zarjaz knows.

Edit - AIUI if they replace a master socket whilst visiting for some other purpose that itself is free. Though the visit may or may not be depending on the callout. To me, that would be another reason to remove the XTE-2005 first, so that cannot be blamed for the problem.

I was in two minds to order a Mk4 or a Mk3 in the end I went for a Mk3 and a front plate from Ebay as filters dont last forever. I think the XTE is probably just as good as the BT Mk3 but an engineer may be less inclined to change it.

Currently running on the test socket with a TP-Link filter as Uno are running 24 hour test to check for errors but interleaving is on and errors are low.
