BT NTE5A Master Socket (+ FREE IDC tool), manufactured by Pressac UK who supply BT Openreach.

 

You may have heard of the BT iPlate (nterstitial Plate or BT Broadband Accelerator) and what it promises to do for your broad band connection! Here is what BT have to say on the product :-

"We've seen huge increases in speed," claimed Ashley Pickering from BT Wholesale's broadband access solutions team. On average, it makes one and a half megs of difference."

What BT Total Broadband Says.....

"Accelerator pushing speeds by an additional 1.5Mb, depending on line and location."

BT Broadband Accelerator is BT's new name for the iPlate.


The instructions that come with BT iPlates state it is not suitable for use with the latest version of the NTE5's with the BT Openreach branding, the reason? That NTE5 already has the extra filter built in.

So if you are willing to swap the front plate off your existing NTE5 for the latest spec (which is what we sell) in essence you will have an I Plate, the only difference is you would have to re-install any customer side (extensions running off the NTE5) wiring (3 wires if done to specification).


This is the extra filter on the latest NTE5's :-

NTE5 Bell Wire Filter fitted to PCB



Note that the BT Openreach branded ADSL filters for the NTE5 socket we sell also do the same job with the added benefit of a centralised ADSL filtering (you don't need plug in filters!).
