POTS Splitter POTS Splitter pwrtran (Electrical) (OP) 7 Jan 13 22:14 Can someone tell me whether a POTS splitter can increase the internet speed? Thanks RE: POTS Splitter IRstuff (Aerospace) 7 Jan 13 23:29 Depends on what's limiting the speed in the first place, doesn't it? Is this something that's happening at work?

RE: POTS Splitter IRstuff (Aerospace) 8 Jan 13 01:23 A splitter is essentially a bandpass filter, so there would be some noise rejection, but if you are too far away, then you are up that creek, and should consider cable, satellite, or some other service.

DSLAM = DSL Access Multiplexer DMT = discrete multitone ( over 250 x ~ 4kHz channels which each can support 50kbps ) POTS = plain old telephone system If you dont have a splitter with the high pass & low pass splitter the audio will load the ADSLS signals and you may be able to hear the ADSL dialing a connection on the lowest channel ( 8 Khz or so. ) So Yes you need a POTS splitter if not included in Modem. Otherwise you get interference, so adding a splitter might recuperate the loss.
