Have you got broadband filters on all your telephones?

Filters also need to be on things like Sky TV phone connections. The other thing to watch for, do you connect wirelessly and if so are your phones cordless as they can tansmit on the same wavelength and cause interference.

Hmm, it is possible that your filter has malfunctioned, can you try another filer?

(malfunctioned - that's a good word innit!)
