BT I-Plate

I have just been reading about the I-Plate in the latest PCA.
I assume that you can only plug your Broadband into this plate which is on the BT master socket.
If this is the case surely it is no use for the large amount of users that have their PC`s in another room on an extension slave socket.
Correct me if I am wrong.

I think I read somewhere that with the I plate fitted all extensions are covered by it.

Jt replaces the bottom half of the master socket front.

It inserts a choke and things to prevent interference via the bell circuit.

It will improve speed most times, and will not stop you having the same wiring you have now.

It is just a screw on plate, and requires no other alterations to you system

I use one and all my extensions are ok, and my computer is well away from the mastwer socket.

Hopee that re assures you.

Disconnect the bell wires if they are still connected.

If you have the BT NTE5 Master Socket, it's unlikely an iPlate will make any difference.

This is the case if:

...there is already an SSFP (Service Specific Front Plate) installed, thus separating the broadband and telephone signals

...the socket is a newly installed BT Openreach socket (with BT Openreach Logo)

...the line is newly installed, without the bell ringer wire included
