Filter for vDSL


[link to this post]
 
We are upgrading from ADSL2+ and moving to Zen Fibre 80/20. At present we have an ADSL Nation 2005 faceplate rather than the filters with tails, but the adsl nation site's data for this faceplate does not appear to have been updated for years!, are these filters, which are branded for adsl not vdsl, the best solution or is the newer BT faceplate (2014) better?, or any other suggestions please? As far as I am aware the fibre will be a customer no-engineer install, unless anyone knows differently? Thanks!

If the old filter is working in spec then should be fine

The newer filters do have some tweaks, mainly around better tolerance components. If your faceplate is 2005 era then probably worth changing just to ensure components are still good

My experience (your mileage may vary):

Last year, I replaced a 2012-era ADSLNation plate with an Openreach mk3 faceplate, which was the first version to include the filtering Andrew referred to. It gave me a useful extra bit of speed at higher bins on ADSL2+. I bought it from Amazon Marketplace: about £12 or £15 with Prime.

BTW, since then, Openreach launched the mk4 version, which only works with the new, toolless design of NTE.

3 km line on THTG: 19/1.2 Mb/s with Sky
Previously: BT ISDN, Nildram, Plusnet, 186k, EFH, Be*, Plusnet (again), Pulse8
