Who cut my cable?!

After a frustrating few hours without cable or internet, I checked the line outside and found it cut in half. This is distressing for a couple of reasons. 1. This didn't happen at the alley. It happened where the line is attached at the house. 2. I have no idea how Comcast handles these situations and don't want to have to pay for a service visit.

After a frustrating few hours without cable or internet, I checked the line outside and found it cut in half. This is distressing for a couple of reasons. 1. This didn't happen at the alley. It happened where the line is attached at the house. 2. I have no idea how Comcast handles these situations and don't want to have to pay for a service visit. 

The part of my house where the cable line lives is within arm's reach of the northern property line. There were no footprints in the snow on my side of the property line so the perp had to have reached over the fence to do this. And the neigh it's yard has no fence. Anyone can come and go from the alley. 

This multi-unit building to the north has people coming and going constantly. It would be impossible to accuse anyone without evidence. 

This could just be a random act of vandalism. But keep your eyes peeled strange people lurking with scissors.

    Comcast came today and patched us up in no time. Again, mostly just frustrated by meaningless vandalism. Maybe this is just a case of a really bored neighbor.

  • The same thing happened to us over a year ago, kind of the same building situation next to us as well. Very frustrating. Hasn't happened since, thank god.
