[AZ] I still want my drop removed

Oddly enough...My drop is not even attached to my house... it simply hangs down the pole. Cox refused to talk to me about their substandard internet service. So, I swapped to the local telco. then I remove the drop, house box, and all cables from my home. Oddly enough I can't seem to get them to remove the cable they have hanging from the pole. I believe I have been more than nice and professional with everyone at Cox that I have dealt with...perhaps they think I am a pushover and not worthy of listening too. Well, for starters they lost one customer. Two...I think I will take pictures of all the techs that work in this area. Quality is clearly of no concern or I'd still be a customer. Perhaps some pictures sent to OSHA of their tech not wearing any safety gear will get their attention. It at least will get them to remove my drop.

Why is it so critical that they remove it? Just disconnect it at the box on your house and life goes on. If they remove it, they have to reestablish it if you or someone else at your address down the line wants service. I wouldn't want to incur that cost as a business if I didn't have to.

At lot of installers and pole climbers are contractors, not direct Cox employees...so they won't give a crap about your calls to OSHA.

While, I couldn't in good-faith recommend doing this, but if a weed wacker were to cut into that cable the noise/leakage would in all likely-hood require Cox to remove the cable.

If the service has been disconnected there is no signal to leak.

Yes, its also likely to cause problems for your entire neighborhood, and depending on the drop, could kill you. Some drops also run electrical for any Cox equipment on the side of the house.

Right. A few Cox supporters told me that 3 years ago when I switched to Qwest (now CenturyLink). We are still getting the speed Qwest promised - something which never happened with Cox. And much better reliability then we ever had with Cox.

Just like CenturyLink Cox varies from place to place. We are in one of Cox's poorer service areas.

I'm not telling you to do this, but if a "bunny ears" type of antenna where somehow attached to that cable, you can bet that either the FCC or Cox will be there very promptly to remove the line.....

Why do people keep suggesting these kind of things? You do know that if your putting enough ingress into the line for them to notice it, your basically causing problems for everyone in your area, right? I find these suggestions spiteful and irresponsible. All you really have to do is call Cox and tell them you are doing construction and need the drop removed and will call back later to get it reconnected.

Many companies have a legal right to enter your property -- phone co., gas co., electric co., water, cable, etc. I think you would have a difficult time stopping them. Does your meter reader (electric or water) who enters your property on a regular basis, wear a hard hat/helmet?

Re: [AZ] I still want my drop removed

That still doesn't have anything to do with Cox. That is between you and the contractor.

Put it this way any Cox/ employee or Contractor without a helmet will be turned away Immediately.

You can get sued from that person if they hurt themselves like this person did and it was their Job.

Anyone can be sued for anything and you can not legally deny access to the easement. They could sue you for damages cause by denial of access and it would be Cox doing it. Meanwhile potential injury is what homeowner's insurance is for.

I would report low hanging cable line to cox and ask them to come out and take care of it, when tech comes out demand he remove it from your house.

If that doesn't work, i would cut it and tie it to the telephone pole and be done with it.

Find a neighbor who is STILL with COX to call in a repair ticket, this is the easiest solution. Let them complain of cosmetics.

If they have equipment on your property or need access to your property you reach their equipment, they have an easement. If they don't, you are getting excited for no reason as they will never be on your property for any reason.
