Can anyone tell me what this does??

I have been wondering this for a while now, and thought I would ask. Anyone know what this little box does. The Black wire is coming in from the BT Pole, the white goes to my Master socket. Just wondered what it is and what it does?http://www.hesketh14.plus.com/BT.jpg

This looks like an RF filter- do you live near a transmitter mast? Couldn't find a lot on them when I tried a google search, but there was quite a useful thread about them last Autumn.

Looks like a standard internal junction box to me.
Sometimes they put them in if the cable to the house has been replaced, but the rest of the internal wiring is sound, hence saving them a lot of time at your house!

if you open it up you'll just see the wires joined - there won't be any filters in place.

I will open it up, and see if there are any filters, and post back an image
