Exposed cable above ground and exposed

Hi,

Can anyone please advise who I should contact with an exposed cable outside my house, I am concerned when the council do their grounds maintenance services someone could break the fibre and I'm left without internet.

Shouldn't this cable be buried underground or protected with a plastic wire cover?

Please advise.IMG_2401.jpgIMG_2402.jpgIMG_2403.jpgIMG_2404.jpg

Thanks,

Francisco Dias

Re: Exposed cable above ground and exposed

should it be buried - yes

should it have sleeve on it - yes

BUT what you have is pretty typical - its easy and quick and that over rides what should happen - there is no regs to say it shold be this deep or the other so its left like that in many instances

it possibly started off clipped to the fence with a few staples 

staff will get to the thread in a few days or more and will [probarbly] raise the issue with an area manager - but its likely to drag on - if you are so inclined a box of staples - a hammer and a little time will solve the problem - if its not your fence then best to ask whoever owns it
