BT iPlate Broadband Accelerator, manufactured by Pressac UK who supply BT Openreach.

BT Wholesale has developed the BT iPlate broadband accelerator, a unique filter that isolates the ringwire/bellwire, minimising any interference & a filter for small Repetative Electrical Impulse Noise (REIN). Easily installed by the consumer without disconnecting any wires eliminating the time, trouble and cost of requiring a visit from an engineer. A benchmark study on 36,000 lines showed that the iPlate can:-

  • Boost line speeds typically by 1.5Mbps.The actual change will vary from line to line (some have even recorded increases of up to 4Mbps!)Although speed improvements are likely,they can’t be guaranteed. The iPlate broadband accelerator also helps to stabilise the broadband connection.
  • Extend the reach by up to 10db (which should help poorly performing long lines)
  • Reduce lost connections by 20% and error rates by 45%

The BT iPlate broadband accelerator is suitable for both ADSL1 and ADSL2 lines.


  • Provide a filtered ‘bell wire’ which reduces the amount of noise picked up by home extension wiring from affecting the broadband ADSL signal.
  • Provide common mode filtering of RF signals without affecting frequencies in the ADSL band.

Key Benefits

  • Maximises the potential performance of an ADSL line
  • Can be installed by the customer without engineering assistance
  • Requires no disconnection of any wiring

Latest Version! You need an NTE5 type socket (Pictured Right) to fit a BT iPlate NTE5 BT/Openreach Master SocketNTE5A Master Socket

If you do not have an NTE5 see HERE for details on why the iPlate is NOT for you but how you can have the same benefits!

BT Openreach MK4 VDSL Plate & NTE5C Socket - Combined Unit




User Guide Download User Guide 

Latest BT Openreach Mk4 VDSL/ADSL filtered faceplate supplied WITH NTE5C master socket. Unlike the previous Mk3 VDSL faceplate this design reverts back to the previous style of replacing the lower front half of the master socket (in this case the NEW NTE5C - also available separately). The new design requires no specialist tools to install - the faceplate clips to the master socket & all wiring connections are via cam lock connectors so no IDC tool is required (tool-less IDC connectors). Centralised VDSL & ADSL filtering is then provided negating the need for plug in microfilters with an RJ45/RJ11 socket providing the connection for a modem/router & a filtered telephone socket for telephones etc. Alternatively, provision is made for a hard wired connection to the modem/router via a two way cam lock tool-less IDC connector on the rear (circled below). The latest Mk4 version retains an RF filter for line stability (a filter for small Repetitive Electrical Impulse Noise-REIN). Supplied as a COMPLETE unit - replaces the master socket with the latest NTE5C design (the original "telephone only" lower front plate of the NTE5C is NOT supplied in this pack as it is NOT required - filtered connections are now on the back plate of the NTE5C rather than the removable front lower plate, again using cam lock tool-less IDC connectors). Note this product requires a suitable single gang back box, (if surface mounting our product code 22MBB) if you are replacing an existing NTE5 variant this socket wil fit onto the existing surface mounted back box. Now supplied with the Mk2 NTE5C master socket which can be flush mounted without any modification to the back box. This socket combination replaces all versions of the previous NTE5A & all previous versions of filtered faceplate (NTE2000, NTE2005, Mk1, Mk2 & Mk3 vDSL I-Plate). Our installation guide can be found here. (Link to BT Openreach guide at the top of this page).

Dimensions (L) 85mm x (W) 85mm x (H) 39mm (If surface mouting using our code 22MBB height will increase by 22mm!).
