BT I-Plate to boost your home broadband

Broadband, Internet

If it’s just taken you five minutes to download this page then you might be pleased to hear that BT Wholesale has started distributing a little gadget to improve your surfing speed.

The BT I-Plate is a filter that sits in your phone jack and blocks out interference from your lighting, wiring, TV and any other techno-gadgetry that might be slowing down your internet speed.

It’s been on trial for the last six months with a handful of BT users and has made improvements of up to 1.5Mbs in 70% of those homes. So, help is finally at hand if you live a little too far from the exchange or have been having problems with your set up – that is, assuming you haven’t already turned your back on BT after one too many conversations with Sub-Continental call centres.

The I-Plate will be send out to all ISPs, some of whom will give it to you for free, but BT’s own customers, however, can expect to be charged a tenner. Thanks BT.
