Crackling noise on phone line

I have a bad crackling noise on my phone line. I have tried different phones and tested these in the test socket and run a quiet line test and it's still there.


I tried your phone troubleshooter but it's not working for me, it stops working during the line test and says oops something went wrong.


This is also causing lose of internet connection.



Can you look into this for me. It would appear the issue started last Thursday evening.

Why not give them a ring of get onto chat and report  fault - good chance it will need an engineer to come out - and you are likely to get a quicker response that on here on a Bank Holiday weekend.
