We had an engineer fix our phone line a few months ago, now it's crackling again, no dial tone, and no one can phone us. We think the rain is getting on the wiring, either on the wall outside, or the connections under the pavement near the road. Can an engineer come out to sort It? We have a phone upstairs too, which is the same, so it's not the socket
