Not sure about the Telstraclear cable network but for the phone network Chorus don't charge you for reconnecting a downed line unless you specifically caused it.

Hi Jamus. Can you please PM with your account number and a contact name and number and I'll ask one of the team to look into this for you.

Cheers, Gary

Where does the cable run and where did the cut occur - we know that its the feed to your house, but did the 'incident' occur on the roadway or on your property?

The TC cable servicing our neighbours house has come off the pole twice due to high winds and landed across our lawn.  TC were dreadful to deal with to get it fixed (I posted a thread about it here a while ago) but the TC rep who replied previously in this thread sorted it out.  He's a good bloke.  Good luck.
