  • So, several months ago the cable service was cut when the city came in a had to put in new drain line. It took about four days to get service resourced.

    Well would you believe THEY CUT THE SAME LINE AGAIN?

    What is wrong with people... UGH.

    What happened to calling 811 before you dig?......



  • Wow! People are so smart!



  • When I lived in NY, we had some work done on the yard and for months after they kept coming and painting lines and putting down flags...even though it was no longer necessary. I think my father called them a few times and eventually gave up and let the problem work itself out...LOL

    If your 811 before you dig is the same (or similar) to our 1100 before you dig, then this is good,obviously, because there is less chance to cut a cable

    However, not everything is done the way the documentation says that it is. While onsite, the person laying the cable might decide to take a different route with the cable to save money/avoid something unforeseen/whatever. This rarely makes it back to the documentation. So the 811/1100 crowd might say "no worries, all good" but the neighbourhood phone lines are buried right where your about to dig...

    True.. this is why cable, water, gas, power lines are 'toned' They are able to tone the line starting either from the service point or from the building...

    So - I get to be an irate person tomorrow when I call.. This in addition to waiting for TWC to install a new modem at a remote site (apartment for the DVR). Not a secure closet,.. a linen closet in the tenants apartment... UGH!
