Re: Upgrading to better speeds after exchange upgraded to ADSL2?

extension sockets are your responsibility not Openreach's it is however your choice  to get Openreach in  will cost you £130.00 to change the master

Re: Upgrading to better speeds after exchange upgraded to ADSL2?

Well I guess I could do it in the extension socket but would it make a diffrence?

 

My understanding of it was that the interference came from the cables between the master and extension sockets rather than from the extension socket itself..?

 

I guess it's worth a shot.

Re: Upgrading to better speeds after exchange upgraded to ADSL2?

Okay, imjolly posted a guide to bellwire removal earlier in the thread and on his link it says the following:

 

"If you haven't got the new type of Master socket

Even though your fixed extensions are connected to the master. Well officially that means you can't go there because it's not legal to take off the front of an old type(LJU) master socket. However that doesn't mean you cannot physically do it. It's entirely up to your conscience whether you take off the front and snip off the wires from the terminals 3 and 4 leaving all the wires on 2 and 5 untouched."
