Removal of phone line to the house

We have not had service with AT&T in 10 years.  They were the last company to maintain the phone line to the house. We will be remodeling the exterior in 2 weeks and will need the wire removed from the house to the alley. We don’t have an account with you. How can we get this resolved? Thanks.

I called and I got no where. The Landline CSR’s last statement was I needed to contact USPS OR FEDEX. Confused, I asked “I need to contact them to have the line from the alley to outside of my house dropped and removed?”

the CSR again said “ You need to contact USPS or FedEx.”

He also mentioned DirectTV owned it but that package with DirectTV was thru AT&T. 
I don’t know where to go from here. Suggestions?

Call again to try to get a rep that's not so inept. You got a bad one.
