1. A signal conditioning device for a telecommunications network, comprising:
a housing;
a first line connection and a second line connection;
a first signal path coupled between the first line connection and the second line connection;
a second signal path coupled between the first line connection and the second line connection;
a first plug-in socket accessible on a surface of the housing and coupled to the first signal path, the first plug-in socket capable of receiving a first plug-in signal conditioner circuit configured to condition a first frequency band signal; and
a second plug-in socket accessible on the surface of the housing and coupled to the second signal path, the second plug-in socket capable of receiving a second plug-in signal conditioner circuit configured to condition a second frequency band signal;
wherein the housing is configured to be accessible by a user to select or replace the first and second plug-in signal conditioner circuits in the signal conditioning device at a user location for conditioning a bi-directional telecommunication signal at the user location.
