AT&T related help: Welcome, Patrick
Is it possible to get my aerial fiber line buried when I bury my power line?
Here's the situation: - I already have AT&T Fiber, and there's an aerial cable stretching across my backyard (from the power/telephone pole to the 2nd floor of my house). There aren't any problems with it, and it works just fine. - My power company recently said that my power line needs to be buried. In order to do that, I've dug a trench across the yard (6" wide, 24" deep) spanning all the way from the power/telephone pole to the house. - Since I'm already getting my aerial power line buried, and the trench already exists, I'd love to get my aerial internet cable buried as well. Ultimately, my question is: can AT&T bury my aerial fiber line in this existing trench? Would there be any problem with the fiber line being buried directly next to a power line? I've tried contacting the Buried Wire Center, but I'm not 100% sure they understood exactly what I'm asking for. There's nothing *wrong* with my aerial wire. It's not an "exposed wire", and it's not like AT&T left an underground cable unburied after an installation, or anything like that. This is purely an optional/elective request on my part: I already have a trench ready to use, and it would be nice if I could get rid of ALL of the wires stretching across my yard before I fill the trench back in.
