Threads on www.boards.ie have some interesting tips - some good some
pure superstition. But there is always hope! Have you checked the
audible buzz isn't due to something between the line that enters the
house and the phone*? Maybe the more technically qualified will back me
up(/shot me down in flames), but even something like a faulty line
splitter might cause the line test to fail.
My line (in Naas) was passing for a while before I decided to get BB.
Murphy's law meant it failed when I went to order, but passed next month.
Best of luck,
* When we first moved into this house the phone quality was poor, until
we investigated and found that the previous owner (an appalling diy
enthusiast it seems) had spliced in a cable badly with sellotape to move
the phone socket out of the cupboard under the stairs.
