Removing the Bell Wire...

I have read on the internet that removing the bell wire can improve your broadband speed. All the guides on this are on the old sockets. I have a new filtered socket, I have taken the faceplate off and I can see that a wire is connected to terminal 3 which is where the ring wire is connected. If I remove this wire, is it safe and will it make any difference?

Their is a wire connected to terminal 3, but it's not orange and white. It's green.

Re: Removing the Bell Wire...

Yea those ADSL filters already have the bell wire removed so that green wire must be in use i wouldn't go tampering with it just incase you mess something up and you dont want to have to call out a BT engineer because we all know what happens when he comes out. ££££££ !!! Smiley Happy
