RunningMan:Stryfe: Its worth noting that the central splitter wont really change the quality of your line and if your service is naked its pretty much pointless as there should be no voice frequencies (carrier or modulation) to separate from the xDSL signal...
Not quite correct - that only covers one part of the reason for a master splitter. The other part is to isolate any existing poor house wiring and line stubs that have a dramatic impact on DSL.
It's only pointless on a naked connection, with a single outlet, with good quality cat3 or better UTP wiring, with no line taps/ stubs or other poor connections.
It's only not quite correct when taken as a standalone statement, out of context with the rest of the reply it was quoted from :)
