Innocent until proven guilty, but in addition to those storming the Capital this past week, here’s an equally bad idea: cutting Comcast cable lines and interrupting service for other people.
The Comcast worker discovered several fiber optic lines running from an overhead railroad bridge to a buried junction had been cut. Several splicing junctions had also been cut, police said. The Comcast employee questioned the man about the cables and the man left, police said.Man Accused Of Cutting Comcast Lines, Causing Outages – LevittownNow.com
Hey, if you’re mad at Comcast, then just do the sane, simple thing: cancel your service. Vote with your feet. Don’t cut services — allegedly — for other people. What did the other Comcast customers do to you, anyway? Innocent bystanders.
The reality is these companies can dispatch trucks and workers for service outages. It’s their business. We get falling lines due to trees and wind in our area every year it seems. These workers are excellent about restoring services quickly. Idiots cutting lines isn’t going to do anything long term, this is short term irritating.
Definitely not sticking up for Comcast, despite us having their high speed internet for many years now, but don’t think the solution is vandalism. They are rightfully facing heat for enforcing a data cap during the pandemic, which is at best extremely poor timing.
How do you deal with companies that take actions and/or have service policies you don’t like? Our home insurance premium just went up a ton (we have made no claims or anything else that would warrant an increase), and now we’re out shopping for new insurance company. Vote with your feet, seriously, it’s the best way we know to send a message. Grind an axe on your blog, social media, etc, that’s fine, too. Sever ties not cable lines.
