According to my OH who had a play about with our faceplate once when I was at work (we only have one wired faceplate) we already have an I-plate.
I did speak to an engineer just to get a quote and he told me two things:
1: ADSL filter faceplates are no better than plug in ADSL filters.Quite right,but it does away with the need for micro filters at every socket in your property.Buy and fit 1 filtered faceplate or buy and fit micro filters at every socket you have.
2: Because my flat's a new build, the problem is that the main phone switchbox thing that leads to the outside world isn't configured properly for broadband and that lots of people in my area have had the same problem.What a load of old tosh! You will have a master socket like everyone else,this will be wired to a DP (distribution point,which is just a connection box between your internal cable and the external network) There is nothing to configure.
He quoted £200 to sort it out.
This sounds somewhat steep and while plausible, a bit odd.... I don't suppose any of you chaps are engineers who could shed light on if this is a reasonable diagnosis/quote?
