Perhaps someone can help me out here. I am scheduled to have a cable connection (lightspeed plan) installed at my house, which is a shared duplex townhouse (2 units side by side). The other houses around mine arent subdivided. My neighbour and I share a common driveway and share a wall between the units.. He's never been that keen on any work that impacts his half of the property (we're not on a unit lease here).
I only found out about the work after calling TCL about installation times. I then called 3 different times and got 3 different answers. The latest being that a "consentor" would be sent out between now and Friday (digging on Monday!).
To those who have experienced this my questions are
- how well do they cover up all the mess created from digging? driveways and gardens in particular.
- presumably if its a long driveway (concrete with a channel for plants on either side), they wont go straight through the middle, but via the sides.
- can they not just use the underground Telecom cable/conduit?
- has any of you had problems with neighbours?
Thanks! Any information will help here - I just keep getting different answers from TCL each time, depending on the customer support person.
