Is the phone still working at all?

If no then one wire of the pair is disconnected somewhere. Ring your line rental company and just tell them the phone isn't working - don't mention the broadband.

If yes, if you turn the router off and just use a phone, preferably plugged into the test socket, on the wall at the back in this pic, is it silent (apart from the messages) when you do the Quiet line test, which is dial 17070 and take Option 2. A corded phone is best, rather than a cordless one.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 54.2/15.2Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

Just tried this and I can definately hear some quiet hissing. I've have problems talking on the house phone with louder hissing in the past.
