I've checked the internet connection at my grandmothers house again and it's still not fixed.
This problem has been ongoing for months now.
The obvious solution here would be to leave BT and move to a ISP that isn't completely and utterly useless but that is not an option as I have no say.
Phoning is a waste of time as the callcenter is staffed with poor english speakers with zero technical knowledge.
How do I get BT to send the SFI engineer that is needed to fix the line fault?

from your previous thread you said that the noise disappeared when filter remove. if that is the case and you get an engineer you could land your grandmother with a £99 callout bill
looking at the stats the line is in a banded profile hence the low speed and high noise margin. connection time is only 16hrs is that due to drop in conenction or router being switch off when not in use?
have you tried quiet line test from test socket with new filter? dial 17070 option 2 should hear nothing and best with corded phone if cordless then dull hum normal
I'll recommend leaving BT for voice and adsl.
(1) the router never used to be turned on 24/7 and the connection was 8mbps down.
(2) now it's on 24/7 and can't stay stable at 280kbps. It loses sync often.
(3) The "quiet line" test is useless. You can't hear adsl frequencies. D'oh!
