BT iPlate Broadband Accelerator, manufactured by Pressac UK who supply BT Openreach.
BT Wholesale has developed the BT iPlate broadband accelerator, a unique filter that isolates the ringwire/bellwire, minimising any interference & a filter for small Repetative Electrical Impulse Noise (REIN). Easily installed by the consumer without disconnecting any wires eliminating the time, trouble and cost of requiring a visit from an engineer. A benchmark study on 36,000 lines showed that the iPlate can:-
Boost line speeds typically by 1.5Mbps.The actual change will vary from line to line (some have even recorded increases of up to 4Mbps!)Although speed improvements are likely,they can’t be guaranteed. The iPlate broadband accelerator also helps to stabilise the broadband connection.
Extend the reach by up to 10db (which should help poorly performing long lines)
Reduce lost connections by 20% and error rates by 45%
The BT iPlate broadband accelerator is suitable for both ADSL1 and ADSL2 lines.
Provide a filtered ‘bell wire’ which reduces the amount of noise picked up by home extension wiring from affecting the broadband ADSL signal.
Provide common mode filtering of RF signals without affecting frequencies in the ADSL band.
Maximises the potential performance of an ADSL line
Can be installed by the customer without engineering assistance
Requires no disconnection of any wiring
You need an NTE5 type socket (Pictured Right) to fit a BT iPlate

This faceplate provides the same benefits as the NTE5/BT Broadband Accelerator bell wire filter with the ADDITION of vDSL/ADSL filtering.
BT vDSL/ADSL Interstitial faceplate (vDSL IPlate) filter for super fast vDSL services such as BT Infinity. Designed to plug into a standard NTE5 telephone socket it is easy to fit, no rewiring is required as the faceplate fits between the existing NTE5 front lower faceplate and the rear of the NTE5 socket. Centralised vDSL filtering is then provided negating the need for plug in microfilters with an RJ45/RJ11 socket providing the connection for a modem/router. Alternatively, provision is made for a hard wired connection to the modem via a two way IDC connector on the front (circled below). This faceplate is backwards compatible with all ADSL services & represents the latest and best in broadband faceplates available on the market. The latest Mk3 version adds an improved RF filter for line stability (a filter for small Repetative Electrical Impulse Noise-REIN) & features differential and common mode filtering performances past 30Mhz. When fitted to the NTE5A master socket BT refer to this setup as "Type 7: Service Specific Faceplate (SSFP) Infinity".
IDC connections for vDSL extension
High quality PCB design
vDSL plate fitted to NTE5 (available separately)
If you are replacing an ADSL faceplate you will need the original lower front of the NTE5 socket to fit onto the vDSL faceplate as pictured above. If you do not have this part you will need to purchase a complete NTE5 as they are not available separately.
