said by Robotics:

So I ask....what would you all do?

If it were my drop I would ignore it. Its not a high voltage line.

Unless I'm totally missing something, it more than enough to knock a filling or two out of someone's mouth if the insulation gets worn or chewed through.

I'm sorry, but your statement just gives me the image of Robotics See Profile chewing on the cable and getting his fillings blown out of his mouth. LMAO!

LOL. I definitely meant it to be a little light hearted and not so doomsday-ish, but it definitely should be reconfigured properly. It might be fine for many years, but even that "low voltage" is enough hurt or kill someone.

And Comcast's leased modem, and of course my equipment.

I can only hope the ground block works when needed.
