Home Phone no dial tone for 2 weeks and calling to home number says "congested"

Level 2



For the past 2 weeks, our Home Phone has had no dial tone and only soft "white noise" ("shhhhh...").


When calling home, an automated voice says: "Destinations you have dialed congested, please try again later."

Can you please check if there an issue with our Home Phone service status?



We have already done these tests.


* We are on the Home Phone and ADSL2+ bundle.

* Have already seen

* Have already done isolation test, connecting a traditional cord phone to wall.

* Have already done isolation test, connecting 2 other cordless phones to wall.

* Only 1 wall outlet at home.

* ADSL2+ internet still works.



Please help out soon, as we have already not had any working home phone for 2 WEEKS.
