We have had several brand new master sockets (the engineers keep breaking them when they take them off!) and a proper BT Openreach filter faceplate. There is no internal house wiring. Only one BT homehub, and one cordless phone plugged into the master socket.
So I have just measured our line (thanks google maps!) and it is about 5.8km of main underground cable, then 1.9km of overhead cable from the exchange. We are second to last on this line (the last is an extra 2.2km of cable up the road!) and there are about 25-28 total customers on the entire run served by the underground cable.
Now, just as a side point, when you dial 17070-2 for the quiet line test, and get an assistant to dial any of the 25-28 properties on the run, you can hear the ringing pulse of their phone through the quiet line. It used to be louder than it is now (after several small repairs), but it is still there. Out of the roughly 20-30 engineers (I wish I was kidding) that have been out 1 suggested that it was an exchange equipment fault and referred it back to BT Operate (no further action), and another couple believe it is an underground fault, but cant do anything about it (overhead guys) and BT probably won't sort it (traffic lights = £££'s)
Sorry its all jumbled! I'd appreciate it if anyone can make sense of it, or knows the super secret word that magically makes them fix it... or the masons handshake.
EDIT - Also meant to say it disconnects and eventually reconnects at a significantly lower speed when there's heavy rain. Yes, I've told everyone.
