[ALL] Cox main line

Why would Cox need to construct a new main line if we already have Cox services?

If the distance from the nearest tap to your home is too great to allow for a normal RG6 or RG11 drop

but why the need to do it after we have had Cox service over 20 years? We aren't a new customer.

Maybe a redesign for a new node?

Removing poles or rerouting for new construction?

There are several possibilities...

Unless they're charging you for this, why does it matter? I imagine wire quality has gotten better in the last 20 years.

Exactly what I was thinking, and after 20 years. I say it may be good to run a new main line anyway's. As anon said above, if they aren't charging you to do this, then really you shouldn't care, and be happy you will have a new main line.

looks like they found what was not allowing the full 8 channels down the line and it only took 6 months to figure it out.

Well if your so called main line was 20 years old, it's very possible it was part of the issue. Reason they wanted to replace it. Let them replace what they want, as long as it doesn't cost you.
