Save yourself some cost...

Get a good handset, disconnect everything and plug the handset into the master socket.

Pick it up and dial 17070 Option 2 for the quiet line test. (this might have changed... look it up) Listen for a while. If noise comes on the line, then there's a good chance that the fault is outside.
