Talking about faceplates, I returned from holiday last Friday to find I had no phone service, (broadband appeared to be working), Got onto Sky and OR appeared yesterday. He did some tests and said the faceplate was duff. (Apparently we had had some severe local storms in our area.) He said it was the third faceplate he had had to replace that day and maybe there had been a faulty batch. He opened up a brand new faceplate from it's plastic wrapper, fitted it, ran another test, and that one was duff too! Replacing it with another new one everything was fixed.
Now just got wait for DLM to be reset..........

And so mixed that you can only rationally take the comments/ experiences on face value.

As I understand it, you'll only really see any difference/ improvement if you're currently suffering from some sort of REIN, as it's just a filter change.

Thanks for that. I think it's convinced me to go back to my Pressac pre-filtered faceplate and ditch the MK2 for now!

Wrong.

Your appear to be thinking about the original i-plate (for ADSL services) and not the original (Mk 1) SSFP for VDSL2 services.
