Old grey whistling test

After reporting a line fault (severe crackling noise, no broadband connection, sometimes no dial tone!) due to windy and rainy weather, got a visit from BT engineer, yesterday, and the overhead cable (split and badly corroded in places) from my house to the telephone pole was replaced.

Engineer told me they have to replace old grey wires with the newer black cable, whenever and wherever they find them, nowadays... though, usually, I suspect that's only when faults are reported.
