Re: Master socket/microfilters/no telegraph poles?

Ahhh ok, not too bothered about dangling filters around, already have enough for each socket anyway.

Definitely do not want sub optimal performance on it so that leaves moving the master or running a cat5.

damnit.

You might get away with it - what are the current "forecast" speeds from BT?

Dangly filters will also give potential issues - you really do need to get teh master converted to a new NTE5 with filtered faceplate.

Forecast figures are up to 69mb on a good line. I know I have a Huawei cabinet and am using a good broadcom modem (Zyxel B10A in bridge mode) to try and maximise what I get.

I could grab an NTE5 and Solwise faceplate as MrSaffron said

Hopefully I can take the old one off and wire it properly! I guess there must be guides somewhere on exactly how to do it.

Get yourself a Krone/IDC tool too.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/DIGIFLEX-Network-Telephone-... is one example.

You could just use filters after removing ring wire, but as an example neighbour went from ADSL to VDSL2 and had star wiring (3 sockets) and after fitting a faceplate filter went from 5 Mbps to 25 Mbps the effect can be that big

If it was my place and with your wiring I'd get the wiring arranged so that the master is where I want it and no other extensions at all, i.e. rely on DECT for the phone

The wiring can be connected using jelly crimps and then blank chrome faceplates added to the unused sockets

Yeah this is what I am thinking, pay to get BT to move the master socket.

Yep, seems a common set up on some newer flats .... sounds identical to some I know by the racecourse in Newbury ...

Agreed, 1 is the master......

The feed pair will be from the cable which doesn’t have the bell wire terminated from it.


(see, I said it’d be in the utility cupboard wink)

If when you order the line a Openreach engineer has to come and install the line, he/she will sort that out for you. A basic install has 1 hours work inside the flat fitting a master socket where no current Demarcation point is or basically on a outside wall (Demarcation where the incoming line terminates, is a BT logo or Openreach Logo socket with removable lower half) or a premium install gives 2 hours to move the master socket to where you want. Any wiring past the master socket as extensions need TRC banding. Do not fit any master sockets, especially non branded ones from Amazon or eBay! Bane of my life doing an install where builders or the owner have fitted non approved master sockets or star wired the lot!
