That's not good news as our area is supplied over aluminium powder wrapped in PVC masquerading as a telephone cable Smiley Happy

Re: Exchange Upgrade - Broadband Degraded

one of the changes I made was to fit a filtered faceplate but as you don't have any extensions then that would noy help you.  I also found that removing the wires in my master which were not in use helped

 

I don't know if you have seen this post which may help as it helped reduce my noise margin by moving router further from TV

Re: Exchange Upgrade - Broadband Degraded

I don't find your reply amusing. If you don't want help then don't post. 

 

PS if you have got aluminiumum cable as I have been here for 30 years BT will not change it so you are stuck.

I was just concurring with you that Aluminium cable is not what you want anywhere between you and the exchange. The reference to powder wrapped in PVC was about the fact a lot of the Aluminum cables have broken down over time and when removed/bent/opened the insides just crumble.
