Right, this is the ideal time to chip in (although it's slightly off-topic) - my mate has Infinity, and he had (whilst he personally was out) an engineer install, about a year ago. I think
he had his girlfriend tell the engineer not to do anything, just ask if "his line was wired up" (i.e. the PCP and DSLAM), and he'd do the rest.
They'd previously got ADSL2+, and so would have had the stock microfilters fitted to all extensions... but I don't know exactly what the end arrangement was. What I do know is that he's always banging on about his broadband dropping out, and up until now, I've tried to ignore him. I also know that he moved his master socket... or at least, he re-wired his internals to a configuration which he understood meant moving it. Several of our mutual mates do work for BT so he may have had help; but none of them are installers, they work for whatever BT Exact is called now (Christ knows).
So; one fact we do know is that he has FTTC, specifically Infinity. If he has no IS but ADSL filters at every possible point, will that "work", but in a slightly sporadic way? And of course, here's the main question: If that is indeed the case, can an i-plate be installed at what is definitely identified as being the master socket
, and then all ADSL microfilters can be thrown in the bin? The electronics recycling section of the local dump, of course.
I'm still on ADSL2+ here, and so am still all microfiltered up, and hadn't thought about his situation properly.
