Picking up from this topic http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/general/f/4422024-w... I've now had a brand new, shiny NTE5 installed following confirmation of a loop fault. This has replaced a rather ancient looking BT connection box that was well past its sell-by date.
I now realise that I should have asked for an interstitial plate while the very helpful OR technician was there, and although it will only be an adsl connection in the short term, I am looking to upgrade to fttc soon.
Despite this the interstitial plate appears to be a good idea, even for adsl, and I've found them on sale at Amazon, OR branded, V3, for a bit less than £15.
My question is, are they legit, and is it OK to buy and fit one without compromising OR's rules and regs? (My provider is Talk Talk Business.) Any comments will be gratefully received.
