Cable Needs to Be Buried

Message 1 of 3

I had a utility replace a power line in my backyard and severed the Verizon Fios line.  A Verizon tech came the next day a hooked up an above-ground temporary line.  A couple of days later two Verizon contractors came out with Miss Utility, marked the lawn for where they would bury the permanent line, left a coil of wire on top of the box, and left.  That was three weeks ago.  I wanted to mow the lawn so I got hold of a Verizon tech via chat and he said they'd be out the next day.  That was about a week ago.  So, I guess from reading other Verizon customers' messages, I'll be waiting a while for Verizon's service to bury the permanent line.  P.S.  Just around noon I had a thunderstorm roll through and just as it ended my Verizon internet went out.  I don't know if the outage had anything to do with having a temporary line above ground or not.  Any phone numbers or contact information I can use to get someone out here and bury the permanent line?   Obviously the tech I spoke to on chat line didn't result in any urgency to get the work done. Thanks.

had the same thing with some old wiring hanging in my neighbors yard! It's a low priority item and he has to report it, but it's been months!
