If the NTS (National Test Service which the Telecom Techs use) system says that there is still a fault, then there is still a fault, what was the result?, circuit imbalance, Loop, Battery or low resistance? if we test it and it (test) comes back Good line, BT termination detected, then there is not alot a tech can do, except to do the normal check exchange,cross cabinet, CT (cable terminal) and internal wiring, in my daily travels clearing faults, going through my old diaries I can saftely state that 87% of faults are within the premises, as Telecom has no control over SkyTV/Alarm/DIY/Electricians, who are not Telecom accredited just think oh that's easy I will give it a go, then muck it up, customer calls Telecom, the poor old Telecom Tech gets a barrel, however when the Telecom Tech finds dodgey wiring or CPE at fault, funny how the customer is nice as pie, and asks if it covered under the wire maintenance agreement.......NO!
I suggest to you before you call 120 you disconnect every piece of equipment you have on the line .....then retest it yourself, if it still comes back showing a fault then call 120, otherwise look out for the $81 on your bill
unlocker: I have tried the test again and this time everything was disconnected, again it said Line appears to be faulty. Dunoo what to do now, will see for a few days and demand for X99 I guess. Any other suggestions on this? Cheers
