AT&T installer said they won't bury a cable and would only install an overhead line
I had AT&T fiber ordered but when the tech showed up he said AT&T no longer buries the cable and that he could only install an overhead line which was not an option according to neighborhood codes.
Technically there's no reason the line couldn't be buried. I have a Comcast line from the pole behind out house, under an alley and buried in the backyard to the house.
The installer said the only other option would be we install our own underground conduit that they could pull the wire through. I'm considering this but it would be significant project and I don't know where to find any details on conduit size, bend size, where to terminate at the pole, how to terminate at the house, etc...
Is AT&T not burying the line a thing in general currently? Other neighbors have had AT&T bury the cable but that was some time ago. I've found nothing in the forum that talks about this.
If we do need to do this, are there requirements published by AT&T for installing your own conduit?
