plug_fail.jpg
Thanks to grover for the picture23 viewsTerminating Fail.

1 – plugs were not crimped at all, just pushed on.
2 – colours not in the correct order (wire mapping incorrect).
3 – no sockets at either end, just a cable poking out of a plate.

Lead_in_job.jpg
Thanks to Cable and Data Communications for the picture44 viewsAfter fixing all the internal issues, ADSL was still no good. Bit-the-bullet and decided to replace the lead-in cable. It didn't pull. No wonder Telstra hasn't replaced it. After some digging and concrete chiseling, the DIY damage repair was revealed.

Customers think that they can do their own underground joints and then silicon them up but it just doesn't cut it. Even though they have used lots of silicon and crimps the blue wire has corroded causing the ADSL issue.

petroleum_joint.jpg
Thanks to Cable and Data Communications for the picture41 viewsPhoto on the left taken Dec 2013 shows outer casing broken.

Photo taken 9 months later on the right has gone from bad to worse. The cracked outer casing has vanished into thin air.

This joint is on the lead-in to a large petroleum company that has 24 Telstra services. Quite a few are high speed data lines which is essential for their operation. The customer would be horrified if they knew that their lines were in this condition.
