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

I have read the many comments on the depth the drop should be buried. I spoke to a foreman with Adelphia several years ago when we were having a problem with homeowners cutting drops in our subdivision (In South Florida). I was cable coordinator for our homeowners association which had bulk billing. I was advised by the foreman that Adelphia could not bury the cable more than a few inches because all homes in the subdivision had irrigation systems and Adelphia did not want to cut the irrigation lines. On the other hand the distribution cables for all services were buried according to the national electrical code, before and homes were constructed, so there was no problem with cutting the irrigation lines when they were installed. Adelphia never charged to repair a drop cut by a homeowner or homeowners lawn service.
