      Replacing that old joint box would do no harm either

      It's a mess isn't it,
      to be honest I cleaned it up yesterday
      I rolled up all the unused wires and now it's very nice

      Re: Stupid wiring / Broadband stats

      Hi,
      Just got a call from a manager from the Post Office saying there is nothing wrong with my line.
      So, they said they'll phone me 4pm after I phone my house seeing if there's noise.
      I've done that and there isn't any noise when the microfilter is unplugged, but as soon as I put a microfilter in there's noise, and it doesn't matter what filter I use (I have 7). I think it's the master box as it's the old non nte. If an engineer comes tommorow they're gonna charge me as there's no noise.
      So, shall I mention BB?

      No point in mentioning BB, you are not their customer for that and they will not be interested. Did you stress the intermmitant nature of the line noise.

      Re: Stupid wiring / Broadband stats

      I have had another look at your photo of the junction box. Am I correct in saying that there are 2 cables coming in from the outside? Or do you have a cable going back out to a garage or suchlike. If you have 2 cables going in, are they both connected to terminals?

      As Brian says, don't mention broadband, unless you get a chatty and helpful sounding engineer (as I am sure Brian was) if he is, he may see something which is contributing to your problem. I can't remember if it has been asked, but have you checked your phone is OK and is a corded type?

      Yeah he's got an extension running from it and the master is on the other leg, it needs a little rewire to work properly with a NTE master.
      I always tried to be helpful as possible with domestic lines/problems, but I have to say that comercial stuff was much more satisfying, as was BB. This time of the year you would have to drag me kicking and screaming from a nice warm exchange

      Re: Stupid wiring / Broadband stats

      I got another call today from the Post Office saying theres no fault but they want to send an engineer, I said that's so you can charge me.
      The denied that and asked if I have a test socket, I said no (around the 5th time they've asked) and I said to them I think it's the old masterbox that is causing the noise.

      Do you think that could be the problem?
