they're fine if the router is at the master and there are no wired extensions, otherwise faceplates are the way to go.

My own preference is for the passive filters rather than active ones like the Austin-Taylor or the ADSL Nation one. This really limits you to the standard Pressac ones supplied by BT which are also available from Clarity or, (I think) Solwise.

You may be interested in this which compares the performance of various faceplates.

Any idea how old that article you've linked to is ? There's no date on it although the files are dated 22 October 2010. The site doesn't seem to be complete either.

I wonder is the parts and design of any of the filters the person tested have changed since October 2010 ?

unlikely, but I wouldn't rule it out.

I bought an XTE-2005 faceplate a few years ago and it (consistently) gave a few hundres kbps lower sync than the Excelsus dangly I was using at the time, and of my accumulated danglies from several routers only one pair gave lower than the XTE.

It was also more affected by using the telephone.

It is in its packaging in a drawer, along with the high-quality ADSL cable obtained with it, which made no difference at all to anything.
