I recently moved house and my line was failing the broadband line
test. I phoned up Eircom and reported that there was a fault on the
line, they tested it and reported that there wasn't a fault but they
could send out an Engineer anyway. If the Engineer found a fault it
would be free but if there was no fault I would be charged the call
out fee, which I forget now.
So you can pay for an Eircom Engineer to come out and check for a
fault, just don't mention broadband, and there is no guarantee that
your line will pass the broadband line test afterwards.
In my case the master socket wiring looked very dodgy so I thought I'd
get it replaced for free, and then probable pass the line test, which
