No Demarc Point

Is the telco required to have a network interface box at the point of
demarcartion? My house has nothing, the line comes direct into the
basement. It isn't even grounded and has no lightning protector.
Qwest refuses to do anything about it unless I pay for a NIB to be
installed. What about grounding? Shouldn't they be required to
ground the line in accordance with NEC?

I thought about grounding one side of the line and calling in a repair
order for hum on the line, when they come to check it at the NIB they
would have to install one.
