Re: [Connectivity] "not servicable" despite trunk line Yes cable taps are done at specific points.
Trunk lines are between the node and amplifiers or between 2 amplifiers . Feeder lines are from amps to taps. So if it's truly a "trunk" line, they won't tap it. The cable company will tap a feeder line though, if they signal is strong enough and it won't put customers further down the line out of acceptable signal levels.
If it's important, back it up... twice. Even 99.999% availability isn't enough sometimes.
