    Already asked him that, no extensions, the router plugged directly into the master socket and one phone plugged into the filter, all as it should be.

    I have some more news, but hold on and I'll relay what is exactly happening later.

    The update as promised.

    My neighbour called EE and they tested the line and confirmed there was indeed a major problem, so they got my neighbour to carry out what they call a hard reboot which restored his internet, but they still called Openreach just to be sure there were no other underlying problems. Within a few minutes of EE reporting it an engineer called my neighbour as said he would be around straight away as he was in the area. The Openreach engineer was there for over an hour carrying out checks.
    I haven't spoken to my neighbour yet, but I will do sometime just to ask if the engineer found anything. But that was quick service I must say. Luckily my neighbour is also an engineer and I showed him the videos and explained VDSL to him and the problems it can cause, so being an engineer he immediately understood.

    All this time I have been listening to 30M and the noise I was getting has gone and can hear stations again.

    Just to let you know Ken that I'm going to contact John yet again, the noise greatly reduced on 30M it now 24db above what it used to be, so it hasn't been completely fixed because of this raised noise level. Sorry mess everyone around, but it's the first time I've had a chance to check it out properly.

    OK Paul, i have informed the EMCC about yesterday`s actions from Openreach which proves one thing and that it can be done if all parties go that extra mile.

    Thanks Ken,

    Well, further development. I didn't bother checking the band after my last post, because I was on top band after that. This morning when I checked there is no noise whatsoever on 30M, I thought the aerial had fallen down, I can't even hear the carriers like I used to. I'm wondering if the Openreach engineer went elsewhere after leaving my neighbour, maybe did something at the cabinet? I don't know, suffice to say that the noise level is around S1-2 instead of S6 yesterday.

    I have let John know by email, just out of politeness.

    There is a good possibility that he did Paul, let us hope so.

    All you can do now is keep an eye on things, lets hope that things remain as they are now, it is a very good sign that the carriers cannot now be heard.

    Update us here if there is any change.

    Glad you're getting somewhere Paul. I tried to attach a video of the noise I'm getting to John, showing the radio running mains power, and also running from a battery with the mains switched off, and no difference. But the file exceeded 25mb so wouldn't send.
    I can try and add it here and see what you guys think ?. But I'm crap at that sort of stuff, so I hope I don't add footage of Dirty Gertie from number 30 by mistake ?. lol

    If that link works, then Gertie can be spared the blushes. lol
