Re: Internet Availability

It could be a main line run meant to connect nodes and not houses. ATT just dropped a fiber line the whole length of my road, but it was only to connect a dslam

You would think they would want to get some people on that line to make some more money. Why would suddenlink say it is not their cable when it actually is?

If it's a main line or a back haul, then phone support or level 1s might not known it even exists as they really have no interaction with that. Level 2 tech might, or a plant tech would.

Or they could also be laying some dark fiber, in which case no one beyond the plant would really know.

The drop could be for planned expansion.

SL sent me a instant message saying, "The cable you are referring to is fiber optic cable that is run for a business. There isn't any Cable TV plant (RF) there, which is needed to provide our TV and Internet services". Maybe one day. What can we do to expedite getting service?

1. Figure out whose ass you need to kiss.
2. Buy lots of Chap Stick.
3. Get to work.

I'm not even sure if that's a joke or not.
