Not very likely.

Utilities typically have a right of way to install their equipment.

If they would move it, you would probably have to pay all of the expenses.
Which could be quite expensive as they would have to disconnect and reconnect all of the connections. Which may not be easy as some of the wiring might not reach the new location.

Verizon does not have a right to obstruct your property. They have easement rights but not at your peril or property obstruction.

 

contact your states Public Utilities Commission or Public Service Commission or other such name in your state. They can get it moved.

 

verizon in NY charges a bogus NYS Municipal Construction Surcharge on each customers billing invoice JUST FOR THIS MOVEMENT it costs you nothing for them to move that connection pole.

 

and if worse comes to worse have a local engineering company remove it and then verizon will be out pronto to do as you request.

 

what a world we live in when no one wants to do the right thing.
