Came home to flags and paint on our lawn for fiber cable yet we haven't ordered or changed service

Hello, we came home yesterday to flags marking our fiber cables and ATT paint on our lawn. It was not on any of our surrounding neighbor's lawn and we haven't ordered or changed any of our services. We haven't received any communication about these flags and paint labels being made on our lawn. Does anyone know why this would happen? I've tried calling but I am just put on hold for over an hour and 30 minutes and counting. The service is terrible and I shouldn't even have to make this call because we didn't order or change anything.

Either someone called for a locate or they're getting ready to bury something. Are all the marking within an easement?  They normally don't contact you for locating existing facilities.

The local locating company (811) is who would have placed flags and paint to identify buried lines…. 

any company could have requested the locate including cable, power, water, etc besides ATT.

You can call 811 and ask who requested the marking.
