have had openreach round
no fault found
however he wasnt allowed inside to check master socket so still back to sqare one
now massive buzzing and crackling noise when raining from the master test socket
now awaiting another call
thank heavens for BT Hybrid Connect!!! other there would be mutiny in the mikkster household with no xbox live and netflix etc LOL
Do you also get the line noise when you use the test socket with a filter?
I have a BT infinity master socket so no need for filters, I don’t own one now anyway - spoke to faults again and they are convnicned its a BT issue.. so I’ll let them deal with it for now.
they sent the wrong type of appointment round. They need to inspect the master socket etc which the engineer today wasn’t allowed to do..
The engineer came today
There was a very unobvious small chew bite on the outside cable which basically looked like a rat had tried to chew.( no other explanation- I have no pets etc) Was unobvious until you went in closely. Was rejoined and new pairs etc etc.
I asked the engineer if I was going to be charged he said no. But I'll await my next bill..
Broadband now working fine and back to my original speeds on around 30Mg and landline crystal clear again.
Been told full fibre will be in my area within next two years so that was music to my ears.
Thanks for all the help.
