If you haven't already, it may be worth swapping over for a different filter.
Also, plug a corded phone directly into the test socket and dial 17070 then option 2 to do a quiet line test. Are any crackles/static or pops at all? If so, you're looking at a landline fault and you'll need to contact whoever you pay your line rental to.

Swapping the filter and checking whether the router actually syncs (and whether the SNR/speeds shoot up to where they were previously) would be worth doing as you more than likely have two spare that sky gave you and it's quick and easy to rule out. It's the nature of technology; the filter could be faulty, so it's just process of elimination at this point.

I am hearing some little pops and some static but not loads, Im going to ring sky tomorrow and see if they can fix it, I would do today but its a sunday and sky doesn't answer calls on a sunday.

Yes, they do. Unless I was the only one taking calls earlier. 08442410515 if you pay line rental to sky as it seems you have a pstn fault on your hands, which will affect the bb itself. You'll need to chat to sky talk technical.
Otherwise, if you pay line rental to BT, then 0800800151.
