@renluop: he's talking about electrical noise, i.e. interference, not audible noise.
Ah, yes; thanks for a more helpful reply than that preceding.

No, I'm talking about audible noise causing broadband problems but folks don't have a phone to check for audible noise as a basic check.

Expanding on that, I was just indicating that although most people will have a landline number, there is a large number that don't actually use it or even have the wherewith-all to do so. Hence the lack of need for numbers.

my reply wasn't intended to be helpful, it was asking you to clarify where the confusion was on your part.

I think most of us can foresee a confusion with the term 'noisy line' when it comes to audible noise on the phone line v EMI noise, as the term is sometimes used interchangeably.

Well, had you just reminded me there were both line and EMI noise, I'd've caught on. Never mind; all is clear now. ;D
