Engaged Tone Instead of Dial Tone – Newtown

Field Job Description

Customer has had no dial tone or internet just an engaged signal on the line. I went to the MDF tested with lines test set on b side going back to the socket and all was testing within spec. I ran a new jumper wire just to take that out of the equation also. I checked the line on the A side and the engaged signal was on the lead in cable. This is 100 % a network issue.
