Just thought I’d let you know of something that can improve your internet speeds…
Most people have a BT master socket in there home, these are quite old and aren’t really designed for ADSL. To keep it simple, when you have a microfilter, both the telephone and the modem aren’t properly shielded causing both to suffer, ie affected data rate and noise on your telephone line.
I recently installed thisfaceplate which properly shields both your modem and your phoneline, you can either plug your adsl modem into the adsl slot on it, or wire your phone extension that you use for the ADSL up to the filtered A B junctions on the back, so you can get it filtered upstairs or wherever your extensions are.
I have an ‘up 8mb’ package, and my data rate went from ~3000 to ~6000, pretty good eh? and now i hear no noise on my phoneline
IF you wana see if it’ll improve your speed, remove your mastersocket faceplate (it has to be one like this ) and plug your microsplitter>adsl modem in there, if you see increased downstream, then this faceplate will most likely improve your downstream rate.
