More CMR malarky

Message 1 of 2

I have scowered the Fios forums and see that Verizon has a definite and reoccuring problem with not burying the Fiber Optic lines. My story goes like this. I was raking some gravel out in my backyard and surprise! a Fiber line less than an inch under then gravel. Long story short, line was severed, tech came dropped a temporary line, a week later a "new" line was installed. 5 weeks later, I owe CMR almost $200. Apparently common sense does not prevail with the installers/line buriers OR Fios. Fios and CMR say I am required by law to call 811 when moving/grading/removing dirt.

I could rant all day about this.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Fios contact me about this.
