Telecom call this a Tie Line.

My mother had a cafe in Wairoa when i was 15, and we put in some computers for people to use for free. Problem was there wasnt any adsl, and on a business line, unlimited internet for $24.95 a month cost 4c a min for the local call charge.

So i investigated routing it through our house nearby. Telecom offered this service and it was called a Tie Line. Basically for every exchange it passed through, it added more cost. I think it was something like $200 per month. Thankfully for us it was only one exchange away (1km max)

So I hooked up the tie line to extn 6 of our old sbx6 pbx system and just had the modem dial home, which then dialed out to the internet. Used a proxy server to speed things up.

Lovely times.

Of course now days i would get a VDSL bridge and run that over it. Unless a chorus tech came knocking and said I was breaking their spectrum planning as the line passed through the exchange.

You can't use xDSL on telecoms Point to point copper services . They have monitoring gear in the middle so its no longer "clean".

We tried numerous times to have the "monitoring" equipment removed with no success

I would say its less monitoring gear and more just a loading coil.
A loading coil will expand the voice distance, but will stop any high frequency stuff like dsl going through it.

They are commonly used on old rural lines in excess of 5km in length, so it makes sense to put them on urban lines where the total distance in the same exchange area would be of a long length.

Wholesale told me it was their monitoring gear that would stop this from working.
