Default BB Connection Updating Begins

A few days ago I ordered from adslnation an XTE-2005 faceplate to
replace the existing one and two XDF-68 sockets and yesterday they
arrived and today the new twisted pairs cable and the idc tool arrived
First thing I noticed was that the cable I have been using is not
twisted pairs . It has been in situ for quite a number of years so
maybe twisted pairs were not necessary in those days or else it is
alarm cable and probably quite ok for "voice"

What I'll probably do is use the new stuff for the new sockets and
keep them just for adsl and use the existing ones for voice .I only
need one of them anyway as the phones are cordless.

Once it is in I'll report back and let you know what difference in
speeds I get . PlusNet presently tells me
