BT customers to get a boost with the iPlate


by David Allen

The iPlate, or the Broadband Accelerator as BT has cleverly renamed it, has been around for about a year.

When it was first offered, BT said that internet service providers should be giving it away free because of the benefits.

In some cases, it has been claimed that the device can improve the quality of broadband by around half a megabit.

That is providing that the bandwidth is there in the first place.

Initially this device was being sold for around £10, but now BT is offering its customer the device free of charge, providing the customer pays the £1.20 postage costs.

The device fits over the main phone socket and basically isolates the bell wire which can cause interference, especially in homes with phone line extensions, but the device is not guaranteed to work in all homes.
