Thanks for your post and welcome to our Community.
The external cabling will need to remain in place, I can look at getting this buried for you though,
If you are happy to go ahead with that please let me know.
complete rubbish - since when have the forum team started that line
to the OP - your choice - certainly give VM the chance to remove it if you want but be prepared for nothing to happen other than stupid statements like the one above - the normal forum response is they will pass the request on to the Aera Field Manager - that may result in it being removed or more likely nothing happening as the request will be ignored
so as i said your choice - you can remove it up to the boundary and put in a convenient skip
