He's at the point where it enters the building. He has no dial tone.
Time to call the phone company, that's what he's paying for.

IF the test was done with the house wiring disconnected, to make sure it
isn't causing the problem.

The OP is long gone. He has figured out it is not his problem. The DSL
works and there is no dial tone at that spot. That means the wiring is
working. If it was shorted, it would ring busy and if it was open, the
DSL would not work.

He is where Verison is on strike so I suspect those good old boy,
union workers, sabotaged the CO on their way out.
Management or the scabs should be able to fix the problem tho.
These days it might just be a keyboard trick.
