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

said by Jonasjlp:

HA!!!! like comcast actually comes out to mark their buried loops. it's cheaper for them to hope you don't hit it and to send a tech out in the off chance you do than to hire a third party locator to come out and mark their cable.

actually they do.. the system I worked in had two people whose job was dedicated to doing 1-call drop / line marking..

yes.. for the distribution system they mostly relied on system maps, but for underground house drops they used some rather expensive equipment to detect and trace the line..

it's probably one of those system specific deals.. they started doing it when it was AT&T and just carried over when Comcast took over.
