I have logged with my ISP and they are getting Chorus out again. Will be interesting to see if it is the same guy

DarthKermit: How does one become a Chorus tech in the first place?
Yabanize:chevrolux: I don't really have a problem with twisting pairs together when there are 4 or more wires to join - easier foe the next person to look at as opposed to a whole bunch of 3-ports. But the joint needs to be insulated with a little bit of dry heatshrink. Also for the Chorus tech to remove a splitter when the complaint is dsl dropping out is just a plain stupid move -I can say this because I used to work on the Chorus network.
Call your ISP immediately and ask them to get Chorus to re-attend and rectify the wiring as well as reinstalling the splitter. Tbat many stubs off your wiring is going to degrade your DSL significantly. Clearly this fault man either a) didn't know what what he was doing or b) was just being flat out lazy because he gets paid per job. I suspect b.
Im no expert, but arent those gel connectors meant to be used to prevent corrosion?
