So I have two lines running into my house - the first is a POTS line with UBA, analogue phone, and VoIP delivered over a separate VLAN (with QoS at both ends of the connection) at 11Mb/s - this has a master splitter already installed and with 11Mb/s I'm guessing is pretty much as good as I'm getting.  The second is a single jackpoint naked DSL connection with no master splitter.  It was installed about 2-3 years ago by Chorus.  This is synced at 4.5Mb/s but I know there's a line fault which is booked in for an overlay.

Would there be any benefit to getting a master splitter installed on the naked DSL line bearing in mind there is only one jackpoint, and the DSL router is plugged directly into it.

Any thoughts?

Hi, assuming that line is direct from the demarc to the jack with no splits or taps then no there would be no advantage.

And that is the really important question to ask.

If there are no other splits or jackpoints from the ETP connection straight to the second jackpoint then there is no point.

You should be able to talk to your provider and get them to run a line test in Chorus SPM and get an idea what the problem with your line is from there.

As mentioned, they have already booked in for an overlay but that requires council permits for civil works, so could be a few weeks.  I know what the line fault is, as do Chorus - was only looking for info on whether a splitter will provide any positive benefit once the fault is fixed.  Since it is indeed a single jackpoint connected directly to the demarc (a new demarc no less) it sounds like there will be no benefit.  I'll be sure to remember everyone said that next time someone tells me "have you got a master splitter installed?" though!
