BT NTE5A Type Socket (Unbranded)



No 26A for improved broadband Latest version that features the filter on the bell wire circuit for IMPROVED ADSL/vDSL performance & WITHOUT 26A surge arrestor which can further IMPROVE ADSL/vDSL speeds! This is the same socket as BT Openreach install made by the SAME company! (minus the Openreach logo BT Openreach branded versions available)


NTE5A type master socket (referred to as "Type 1 NTE5"), as previously installed by BT Openreach (now replaced by the NTE5C master socket). It allows easy testing of the BT network by removal of the front lower faceplate to reveal the test socket. IDC terminals on the rear connect to the incoming BT line, IDC terminals on the front faceplate allow the end user to easily connect internal telephone extension wiring. Supplied as three pieces (22mm back box, rear faceplate with test socket & lower front faceplate with integrated bell wire filter) complete with screws & cable ties. The 22mm back box can be discarded if flush mounting, the socket fits any standard single gang box. Dimensions (L) 85mm x (W) 85mm x (H) 35.5mm.

Info For ADSL/vDSL installations the lower half of the front faceplate (as pictured below) can be replaced with a filtered faceplate such as the NTE2000, NTE2005, BT/Openreach vDSL Faceplate or VTE2015, this will give the same benefits of the bell wire filter with the addition of centralised ADSL/vDSL filtering. (Note, these are known as Service Specific Faceplates (SSFPs). The BT/Openreach vDSL version retains the original NTE5 lower front faceplate).
