Hi, this 'How To' video shows a real example of an increase in internet ADSL broadband speed of over 60%. It is ideal if you want to fit an ADSL or VDSL faceplate but your router is located nowhere near your master socket. It shows you how to use your existing telephone extensions to provide a dedicated ADSL or VDSL extension which can help increase your broadband speed because the signal can degrade as it travels through voice telephone extension wiring.
It is always best to install your router by your master socket but if this is not possible then follow the steps in this video.
By using the setup in this video you stop the broadband signal travelling down the voice extensions and allow it to travel down a twisted pair of wires to the location of your router.
In the UK master sockets are often located in the hallway because historically people had a single telephone in the hallway but this is not the ideal place for a router as most people want the router hidden away or next to the computer.
In the video the router stats which shows what the line is capable of achieving went up over 60% but the actual results on speedtest.net stayed the same but this is due to DLM (Dynamic Line Management) which on Plusnet broadband can take up to 3 days to change so within 3 days of this video the actual speedtest.net speed would increase in line or just below the actual router stats. In hindsight I should have shown the before and after router stats page but I didn't BUT I did note down the results as a comparison. Thanks for watching.
Many thanks Vince
