Phone line real crackly, ringing then cutting out

kenny92, Jun 29, 5:19am
Today when our landline rings it's mostly ringing once then cutting out. The person has to txt me and I can ring them but the line is so crackly it's hard to hear. Who do you ring these days about this? We are on a landline/broadband package with Vodaphone but don't think they deal with issues regarding the line? Thanks.

Call Vodafone they are your provider and report a fault.

Thanks will do. Times have changed since you used to ring a number in the telephone book!

I had this problem years ago, and it was a faulty ADSL filter, so try removing them and see what happens

Good luck getting through to Vodafone. I had to change from them because it was almost impossible to get through to customer support!

we had this and it took ages to discover it was a faulty line on the street pole - it was worse in the wind as the line was blown around.

Its because we live in a third world country when it come to tele communications

Yea I agree with you there tool_shop!

I don't believe so. I went over to Tonga a few years ago and their cellphone network was better and it was only a small fraction of the cost to use. was about 1/8 of the cost that we were paying here.

3rd world country has better telecommunications.

We had that, turned out water had gotten into the line out at the street. Every time we had a lot of rain, it would get into the black box at the end of the property causing the crackling line.
