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

Very Effective

I ordered the Broadband Accelerator for my uncle, who was experiencing very low ADSL broadband speeds. Despite disconnecting all unused telephone line extensions in the house and connecting a microfilter to every telephony device, the download speed would not exceed 0.3 Mbps. I fitted the broadband accelerator to the master socket (which was at least 20 years old - it had the old telecom logo on it - a 'T' in a circle). Within half an hour the download speed increased to 2.5 Mbps and the upload speed increased by 0.1 Mbps to 0.6 Mbps. The connection has consistently maintained these speeds since the accelerator was fitted. I am very surprised at how effective the accelerator has been. Although the accelerator may not lead to such a dramatic improvement in performance for everybody, for under £10 it is excellent value for money and well worth a try.

This worked great for me. I was only getting around 3mb maximum, after fitting this device my speed went up to 5.75 on average. Massive improvement.

An essential piece of broadband kit

Excellent gadget, broadband speed instantly up from 3.5 Mbit/s to 5 Mbit/s which is a speed I could only get previously by plugging the modem directly into the master socket with the house wiring disconnected. It does was it was supposed to. Fitting was easy, undo two screws, unplug original plate, plug the Iplate into the master socket, plug original plate into the Iplate, fit the replacement longer screws, job done. Ordered Friday pm, received Monday am, extremely pleased and impressed.

OK, so I'm really close to my local exchange but after fitting, my ADSL speed has gone from 4.5MB to 7.5MB! This is literally 1 hour after fitting, which incidentally would be easier with some instructions. I am bullish now, and would be pleased to see some longer-term speed and stability gains... but seriously just buy and fit this item as it actually works. BTW upload speed seems unaffected, for now.

The most important thing about this offer is that by agreeing to take one of these accelerators you are also agreeing to..

EXTEND YOUR CONTRACT BY ANOTHER 12 MONTHS.

If you are happy with that then fine but I suspect that may well change a lot of peoples minds.

Also note that all the good reviews are stacked at the top here. For some people these accelerators had no affect.

Before the fittment my speed was 2.4 MBs the moment i tested it today it ran at 4.85 MBs wow ! I'm very happy with this little gadget and I don't think theres any thing else you could buy at this £8.00 price that would give you a better result.... !

This was excellent! I never expected a dramatic change in speed but this was above expectation.
Prior to fitting my download speed was 2Meg and after fitting I was getting 3Meg; 50% more!

This was real value for money.

I found this… I never looked back. Broadband speed for 5 days stayed at 10kb/s, after this it shot to 170, 10 days later 240 and by the end of two weeks I was having a download speed of 371kb/s… IT’S AMAZING! So good & fast, I’m unsure if it’ll go any faster but I’m fine up until my area gets superfast broadband or fibre optic!
Though before this, if I'd try to ring someone it'd be such poor quality (crackly) and I could never hear them, same with my internet it was staying around 10kb/s; this being said on a good day I'd get a nice 170kb/s (not too bad) BUT weirdly it was only when the weather was good so I knew there was interference of sorts... so I read up that extension lines in your home interfere with your land line and your broadband signal, even if they're not being used!! Which I have an electronic wireless phone that has to have an extension line as there is no plug near my master socket… so I was in a need of help.
Then BT to the rescue!
