Vte faceplate or microfilter


[link to this post]
 
Hi, I'm new on here so sorry if posting on wrong page. We currently have a bt openreach 5c master socket with a microfilter in for our phone and broadband. Our speed is always slow, i was wondering if we changed the master socket to a vte faceplate so we can plug phone and broadband into master socket, would this improve the internet speed?
Any help would be appreciated.

It will only help if its the phone wiring in the home that is slowing things down. If the connection speeds are all in line with the distance to the cabinet (for FTTC) or exchange (for ADSL/ADSL2+) then changing socket is not going to make a major difference.

Presumably if you removed the faceplate and plugged your micro filter into the master socket behind you would isolate any extension wiring and simulate having a filtered faceplate?

Assuming your master socket is installed in the right place, the first socket on the wire.

You could then see if it Improved your internet speed before shelling out for the faceplate.

Hi Emma,

First of all what did your isp estimate your line speed to be?

Secondly, is the slowness whilst using wifi - do you have many devices ?
