Mk3 VDSL Faceplates going for silly prices on FleaBay
« on: January 14, 2019, 03:16:20 PM »

Both are the same seller,  may have temporarily put prices up whilst on holiday rather than cancel the auction.

It's pretty common.
It can be easier and cheaper to temporarily increase the price high enough where the item won't sell than it is to remove and relist the item.

10.83 appears to be the last price they sold 1 at.

I have one NTE5c and I got rid of the Mk 4 faceplate that the engineer gave me and put a BT-telephone-socket-only front on instead. I can do this because I have no phone, only dsl. I used a very short BT-plug-to-rj11-plug cable into my modem - like a much much shorter old dial-up modem cable.

All my other NTEs are NTE5as and have either BT-phone-socket (BS6312 431A) fronts or AA (aa.net.uk) DSL-only straight-through faceplates on their fronts. I have some RJ11-RJ45 cables and RJ11-RJ11 cables for them, the former being a (slightly) better fit.
