lots of static on phone line

As the title says ive got a lot of static noise on my phone line.
There is an old phone line coming from the street (just two wires. One cable. Two wires inside) to the inside of the house(no phone box outside). The two wires splice straight to the house wiring.
All the phones In the house have this static(cordless and corded). Ive even connected the corded phone straight to the line from the street. Problem still exists.
Does anybody know what the cause of the static could be?

Welcome to the forums!

If it's not your phone or the wires in your house - it's time to call the phone company and complain!

Theres no ground going to the phone line. Someobe told me that grounding it might solve the problem... is there any truth to that?

Never mind. You said no box outside, and I missed it the first time.

Answer has already been said....call the phone company. Anything outside the house is their problem.
