Openreach have announced a new version of the NTE5 master socket will be available soon. As you can see the new design features a rounded faceplate. The new version will NOT be compatible with any of the faceplates currently desiged for the NTE5 so this may well shake up the filtered faceplate market! Openreach have announed the following versions will be available :-
- NTE5C (replaces NTE5A)
- NTE5C Secure (replaces NTE5B-the Blank no socket version!)
- NTE5C/VDSL Front Plate Mk4 (new version VDSL faceplate-combined unit)
- NTE5C SDSL Front Plate (replaces NTE2000 CCU SDSL Front Plate)
- NGA FVA Voice Plate supplied with NTE5C backplate (replaces NGA FVA Voice IPlate)
Update! Available now: https://www.bttorj45.com/telephone-sockets/nte5c-master-socket-openreach-branded/ & https://www.bttorj45.com/vdsl-adsl-nte-filtered-faceplates/mk4-bt-openreach-vdsl-socket/
Update! The cam lock connectors are no longer blue & red, they are all clear, now designated the NTE5C Mk2 socket.
