Hi,

Just wanted to confirm that I don't need a master splitter in a house with 1 phone jack?

Thanks.

Just need a filter on the phone jack for the phone.
My understanding is that installing a splitter is possibly going to give better internet performance.

You have paid for a VDSL install (master filter PLUS a new dedicated Cat6 cable PLUS a new jack point).
This will improve your internal house wiring.
Get your money's worth.
It may improve your VDSL performance, and certainly won't make it worse. smile


EDIT  Snap would probably be delighted for you to skip the master filter - it saves them (your) money.

get the master splitter if you have an alarm installed as this pretty much a jack point.
even if you are only getting adsl now, it will have bigger benifits for vdsl and line noise.

and never turn down free stuff.... /wink /nudge /wink /wink

Odds are that you'll get better VDSL performance regardless, as unless you're in a newer house, the internal wiring won't be twisted to the spec for carrying a VDSL signal, and I've seen comparatives of RJ45 vs BT jackpoints and it actually makes a notable difference to line speeds.

Nothing off hand - just knowledge gleaned from my time in the industry.

 

As I understand it VDSL depends heavily on a specific twist rate (not dissimilar to that in CAT5e or CAT6 cabling), and as such we have changed to using a different style of jumper wire, and all new cable installed is VDSL certified cable.

 

RJ45 is a similar thing - an RJ45 CAT6 patch is designed to carry the twisted signal, the BT plug isn't. In the end it's mostly anecdotal evidence - I've seen it make a difference, to the point where type of jack point impacts on if DSL does or doesn't work in extremely long pairs.

Fantastic insight, as an alarm installer i never thought too much about the impact even a single grease filled scotch lock could effect total xDSL line performance. ill think twice before patching in anything to a vdsl enabled line.
