BT claims iPlate increases speed

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

It has been mentioned before, but the iPlate from BT has never really taken off in any big way, despite claims that this small and unobtrusive phone socket fitting can reduce the interference picked up by a broadband connection.

The iPlate isolates the wire being used for broadband services by passing the wire that was used for the ringer before the router or modem was connected.

This bypasses any potential interference from other electrical items and therefore offers a clearer connection.

However, the iPlate will only work in older properties that have still got the original BT wiring; newer properties will not gain the same benefit from the iPlate.

BT believes that wider use of the iPlate will support the government’s plan for a minimum 2 Mbps broadband service for all households.
