Have just done a good couple of hours plugging routers, USBs, filters,
etc in all kinds of holes in all possible permutations. The
conclusion is this; there is a problem with my phone master socket
somewhere between the test socket and the socket on the faceplate.
I get my full 1Mbps speed test when connected via a USB or router,
with or without filter into the test socket, but anything plugged into
the faceplate socket drops to ~850kbps if it connects at all, and out
of the 8 speed tests, four timed out and the remainder got between
I understand that the bit that BTs cable connects to is theirs, but
can I replace part of this master socket? If BT do it, will they
charge (and roughly how much)? I'm with a LLU ISP, but still with BT
for line rental & calls. Do I go through my ISP or BT?
