Is the analogue phone noisy all the time? Have you confirmed using a second wired handset? If so report it as a fault to your line rental supplier.
No, it's not noisy all the time. If it was, the fault would be much easier to prove as it would show up on the ISP's tests consistently.
The time when I managed to catch it and listen to the noise, I stayed on and also caught it when it went quiet again. It was like a switch had be pressed.
I reported it to IDNet when I was with them and they stated it was on my side of the demarcation point. That resulted in changing the CPE 3 times, with no change. Changing the modem cable 3 times, with no change. Changing NTE and filter twice, with no change. Re-wiring from when the overhead line attaches to the house, to the NTE socket. Again, no change. I have nothing on my side of the NTE except a 1m modem cable and the CPE. I'm even running to the NTE test socket directly now, and the issue is still apparent sporadically, and therein is the issue with reporting it and capturing it with the ISP tests.
So I'm not going to buy another analogue phone to confirm what the current one I have, and DSLStats is telling me.
