Re: Optimum line install

Is DirecTV for video, plus some sort of DSL for Internet an option? Might not be perfect, but I'd settle for that over paying Cablevision $3,000 to run some hard line down the street for me.

Unfortunately not, I guess they're too far from the CO to get DSL, so I've been trying to figure out how to get CV installed for them without the outrageous price..

I'll take a look about that DoITT hopefully new jersey has such a department, curious what was the gist of your complaint?

I more or less told them exactly what I was experiencing; that I was interested in obtaining Cable service, and that I resided in a CV area but there were no lines running through my yard. Told them that my neighbors a few doors down had service, and that the entire block above mine was also wired for service. Also told them that on many occasions I tried to have CV wire up my residence but I always received the run around. They took it from there.

Thanks, sounds like a very similar situation, and doesn't hurt to give it a try..

The only problem with that is it's outside of DoITT's jurisdiction, so I would have to find a New Jersey equivalent to it. I'm not seeing a direct equivalent but I imagine there's got to be some department that handles issues such as this.

That is certainly helpful if I was having the issue :P I happily do have CV services, my friend in NJ has the issue.

Though both PA and NY seem to have far nicer websites...

I just sent a question to the Office of IT in NJ so we'll see if that goes anywhere.

I already told you to contact the town. Did you do that yet?

Here's the State of New Jersey office - »www.state.nj.us/bpu/about/divisions/cable/
Expect them to tell you they have no control over these types of issues.

It is not mine to contact the Township on their behalf so no I haven't contacted the township.

Gathering suggestions, and that is one I will pass along.
