BT has re-launched a product that will help to increase its customers' broadband connections speeds.

The BT Broadband Accelerator is a device that fits over a user's main telephone socket.

Free of charge, the newly renamed iPlate can improve the reliability of an ADSL broadband connection, as well as the speed, because it helps to filter out interference on the line.

It is aimed at people who have more than one working BT socket in their home and customers can apply online for the plate, needing to only pay for postage and packaging costs of £1.20.

Only available to BT Total Broadband customers, the iPlates are limited to one per broadband account.

Explaining the product on its website, BT noted that a "speed increase after fitting an accelerator is not guaranteed - especially if you already have a speed close to the maximum limit (8Mb for ADSL or 20Mb for ADSL2+)".
