Re: [Connectivity] Help: We accidentally cut our comcast HCI lin

said by Wayne99021:

I got some in line connectors from a Dish guy and redid the connection. I didn't have any compression connectors or the tool so just used the crimp on type connectors. Used some heat shrink and a couple underground splice kits I had left over from my Bell Telephone days. Put it in the ground and covered it up.
I figured if it started having trouble I would call whoever the ISP was.
That was over 10 years ago and have not had any problems with that connection at all. My signal levels are excellent.
So because a person doesn't have Comcast fix the cut doesn't mean it's not going to work for many years.

Yes. And Im sure this is a typical fix as well. Im sure techs do not go into homes every day and "undo" someones DIY connections made up of Telco parts and smashed together connectors....
Great recommendation!

This wasn't meant to be a recommendation, only what I did.
Whoever the ISP was at that time would take a week to come fix anything and I wasn't going to wait that long.
If I started having problems with the connection I was going to call Comcast or whoever the ISP was and have it done right to their specs.
After 10 years, no problem so I see no need to have it looked at until there is a problem.
