Faceplate vs straight connection to splitter
« on: October 14, 2019, 04:30:09 AM »

Hi here i have seen people in uk use master plate with VDSL filter, rf filter built in etc and i wanted to order one but i want to ask is it worth it?
here in Pakistan we get only modem and splitter in the box from ISP it is just a splitter without any high voltage protection, rf filtering etc and i have connected it with telephone wire using cat6 cable
and i have 2 telephone set connected after the splitter
IF i order one master plate with vdsl filter from UK it will cost me 45 pounds with shipping but i can get new modem for 12 pounds from my isp with splitter so i think it is very expensive

The faceplate type filters are very good, excellent performance and tidier so less prone to getting damaged. Available on eBay too, for better pricing. You will need the correct cable - an RJ11 to RJ45 cable for the modem (ideally, or else RJ11 to RJ11 will work but not as good a fit); and the telephone socket will be a BT type socket.

As you have already identified, the cost is rather exorbitant when delivery to Pakistan is factored in. Being designed for use in the UK, the telephony connectors are BS 6312 (431A or 631A plugs) and variants of "Type 600" sockets. The data socket is 8P2C and is capable of accepting both 8P8C and 6P6C plugs.

If you do not have a telephone connected to the line, then the filter is actually unnecessary as all current modem/routers will have a high-pass filter built in.

yes that master plate with filter is very good looking and neat that's why i wanted to order one and right now i have main telephone wire soldered with cat6 cable only using one pair in it and then connected to splitter from splitter to modem and two phones connected after splitter

As Burakkucat pointed out, the very best filter is no filter at all. If you can get away with no phone or have a mobile phone instead, or telephone on a second line then that might give a tiny performance edge. The amount of performance increase may be minute to non-existent though. But few people - apart from me - are quite so nutty and obsessive as to forego a phone on the same line unless they really donít need one.
