wiring ok?

[link to this post]
I am about to be upgraded from adsl to vdsl and was wondering if my wiring was optimal? Please see the linked pics.

It looks like the original master was in the garage. The wires have been cut and spliced to extension cable which feeds the new master?/adsl faceplate. I fitted this adsl face plate, there was just a normal telephone socket and adsl filter, the adsl faceplate took my sync from 8 to 13 meg. From the face plate from what I can gather, the phone signal is fed back along the same extension wire back to the garage which then feeds the rest of the extensions in the house (which I have disconnected apart from the 1st extension). Is the way the socket in the garage is normal?

I am about two miles from the exchange by road here my stats:

The pair is back ended through the same cable, this is frowned upon, but TBF, I've not seen it ever cause an issue.
It should be fine as is when you upgrade to FTTC.

I followed the cable from the original master to the adsl face plate which is on the other side of the garage wall in the kitchen about 8ft away and it goes up into the garage attic and here is about 5 meters spare up there wrapped around the soil pipe before it comes down to the adsl faceplate.

Is that likely to be effecting anything?
