My SOGEA line was cut down in a joint 1 week after conversion. Been OK for the last 6 months or so.Just for my understanding, on a SOGEA line is there any blow if you put a butt across the line? I thought there would be soft dial tone or a permanent tone of some description.
No, there is no voltage or any condition on the line at all. The e side connects to the test head but nothing else in the exchange.
Testing for a digital service will reveal the pair is live, all other tests will show the pair is free or not in use.
