Re: [Connectivity] Help: We accidentally cut our comcast HCI lin

4" may be ok for a short, simple line drop (although it would make me nervous), but when I just put in my own 500' conduit for a line extension Comcast told me to use 2 inch Schedule 40 PVC pipe and at least 2 feet of depth. Due to the terrain, tree roots, etc I went closer to 4-5 feet on average, but I also had it done trenchless with directional drilling, so depth was less of an issue than length.
On the other hand, the 1/2 - 3/4 inch coax used is impressive, and having my own dedicated tap 3 feet from my house and 25 feet from where the cable modem will live is nice. Now if I can just get my account marked as active so they can activate my service life will be good.

I do this for a living

plant is a completely ball game....and since your is in conduit, its even better, cause if my locator told me its 4'+ in the ground, i would not be digging it up...
I'm better than you!
