Kyanar: You know, the line test they did takes all of about a few minutes right? If it were out for several days as a result of a test, they really should have performed a PVC rebuild on your line (port reset).
But the important thing to remember also is that all ISPs have to rely on Chorus to fix it if they detect a line fault, and Chorus are... for lack of a better term, fracking useless. It seems if it's not a Telecom line, it doesn't get fixed.
Sounddude: pseudogeek2009 : Are you on Orcon+ or Orcon? If they have sent out a Chorus tech, then that could explain the couple of days requirement.
Otherwise line tests should be pretty quick.
Let me know how you get on, and I will see if I can get some more wheels turning to get your problem solved.
xpd: There is logging that can be done to test a line also I believe.... that can take a few days to gather the data and assess it from there. Maybe thats what the hold up is...but that dosent disconnect your internet, jsut monitors and logs it....
