Latest version that features the filter on the bell wire circuit for IMPROVED ADSL & VDSL performance & WITHOUT 26A surge arrestor which can further IMPROVE ADSL & VDSL speeds!
NTE5A type master socket with BT Openreach branding printed on the top left corner. Equiped with a "test socket" this master socket makes isolating wiring problems easy! IDC terminals on the rear connect to the incoming phone line, IDC terminals on the lower front faceplate allow the end user to easily connect internal telephone extension wiring. The NTE5A was previously the most common type of socket that BT Openreach installed (the external versions known as XNTE are now discontinued, the NTE5A is now replaced by the NTE5C), supplied as three pieces (22mm rear back box, rear plate with test socket and front lower plate) with screws & BT Openreach instructions, the socket can be flush mounted to any single gang back box if required.
