Description

Speed up your broadband by eliminating interference from your extension wiring

Did you know the telephone extension wiring in your house can pick up all sorts of electrical noise and interference from TV's, lights and other everyday electrical equipment? This interference can affect your broadband signal resulting in a slower broadband speed.

Try our quick and affordable solution

Help is at hand! BT has developed the I-Plate, a unique filter that helps stop any interference affecting the broadband signal. As long as you have a suitable BT Master socket, (see below) and extension wiring (see below) the I-Plate can help. It's quick and easy to fit with a screwdriver and you don't need to disconnect any wires.

How much could my speed improve by?

In previous tests the I-Plate has been shown to boost line speeds - typically by 1.5Mbps. The actual change will vary from house to house. Although speed improvements are likely, they can't be guaranteed. The improvements in speed will take up to 2 weeks to come through so that line stability is not affected. Even if it doesn't improve the speed the I-Plate can help stabilise your broadband line making it more reliable.

BT I-Plate - Will it work for you?

1. Do you have extension wiring?

Extension wiring is the telephone wiring, usually a small white cable, which often runs along your skirting boards or outside your house. It connects the main socket to any extension sockets you have. It doesn't matter if you use the sockets or not, as long as the wiring is there the I-Plate may help.

2. Do you have a master telephone socket with a horizontal line across the front? The I-Plate is NOT suitable if:
  • your socket has a horizontal line, but also an Openreach logo on it - this socket has an I-Plate filter built in.
  • your socket doesn't have a horizontal line across the front
  • your socket has two connection points - for telephone and DSL

My connection speed was typically 1.3meg (based on what my router indicated), I put this I-plate in (takes no more than a minute if you have a screwdriver to hand) and when the router connected back up I instantly had 2.8meg, I am astonished and all for £7, I would have happily paid £70.

I have terrible broadband usually ranging from a download speed of around 80kb/s so I had nothing to lose in trying this I-Plate. I now have a download speed of 214kb/s. Best £7 I ever spent. Highly recommended to give it a go.

If I could give it 6 stars I would.

Was getting 19MB, then I plugged in my new Belkin N1 Router and got 20MB... THEN I added the iplate and compared speeds - I was now getting 22.120MB.

Not bad for a little over a tenner. Excellent.

...but for about a tenner, I thought it was worth a try. My BT connection had been around 1.5 MB/s, and for the money, any improvement would have been worthwhile. It took overnight for the change to register, but the day after it was installed, the download speed doubled, confirmed by various ADSL speed checkers. I can still hardly believe it.
