I saw a comment that said when this drill got into a major conduit, it yanked 'miles' of cabling and fiber away from everything it was connected to. And everything had to be re-run to restore service.

I guess that's one advantage to satellite ISP. Lordy - what a blinking mess ..........

I'd hate to see that repair bill.

Let alone the fine that came along with it.

That look on his face says 'It wasn't me. The locator's line of little flags is way over there!'

Either that or he's the repair guy thinking about his next paycheck and that new Porsche.

That repair will take a lot of people and some time. Imagine how many devices got the connectors ripped out of them when their cable suddenly got sucked away. It's more than just snaking miles of wire or fiber through the maze of conduits out to the end users.
