Default Cables Running Above Ground (From Lamp Posts)

Anyone notice the cables running from lamp posts to individual houses above ground? Apparently, when Rogers does the installation of cable for a particular house they often find that the cable system below ground has been damaged. Thus, they run one above ground from the lamp posts. Who gets around to fixing these???

Rogers will contract a company that will tunnel dig the line. It's expensive to go out to do just one, so they may wait for a bunch of them to do all in one day.

As well Rogers will also have to have a stakeout done for the other utility lines likes the telephone lines, water and electricity. That way when they go to dig they don't cut something vital.

Water and electricity is 6' + below ground, the rogers cable is only 6 - 12" below ground.
