For information, if you would like to improve your broadband speed you can purchase an i-Plate (iPlate), which is a filter for use on ADSL Broadband lines to improve the speed & stability of the connection. It is very easy to install and costs approx £7.  The majority of the people in the village who have bought one have seen a marked increase in speed, in some cases an extra 1.5m after installing!  The link for the BT I plate (broadband speed booster) is as follows: htth://
