Can't get Verizon to bury the cable/wire from new FIOS installation

Can't get Verizon to bury the cable/wire from new FIOS installation

Message 1 of 4

Does anyone know how to get Verizon to bury the wire in my backyard?  I have only  been a customer since April 30th and can't get any help.  The wire goes from a box outside of my backyard property, under my backyard fence and to my house.Verizon transfers me all over the place and I have spent hours on the phone trying to get help. I was even told to call Miss Utility and they said they do not bury wires. Someone is going to trip over the wire, as it runs across a path behind my townhouse. I am shocked at this poor customer service! I HAVE PAID MY FIRST BILL AND DONE MY PART TO CALL AND TRY TO GET HELP.  I am going round and round in circles,  They closed my ticket without resolving the issue.

Any help would be appreciated.  They only thing I get are automated phone calls asking me how their service is. THey are completely useless,
