Re: [Connectivity] Help: We accidentally cut our comcast HCI lin
Thats how its done all over the United sates for the last ten years or so. But not all house were built in the last ten to twenty years. I guarantee i could come up to new england and find houses without conduit. The way its usually done is the builder gets in touch with the local phone and cable company and has the conduit supplied by them. The cable company wasnt always willing to supply conduit to someone that may or may not get service from them. The phone company often just supplied the phone line for direct burial.
I'm not saying there isn't any shoddy and low-quality work done. Yes, there is. I'm saying that quality work is done with conduit in crushed stone, several feet down. Enforcement of quality may have gotten better over the years.
