Hi all,

Anyone know anything about how I go about removing old Saturn cabling from street to house? (does Vodafone now "own" this?)

Cheers,

Jeremy

Why do you need to remove it?

DarthKermit: At the house end I'd be happy to do this, not so much the street end

Quickymart: It's unused, so for aesthetic reasons

Ring Vodafone and request for a tech to be sent out to remove it.

Why wouldn't they?

Aslong as the OP is the property owner / has the property owners consent then Vodafone will remove it for them.

Result: raised a helpdesk ticket with Vodafone - after being passed around a few times to different teams (and explaining that no, I wasn't a Vodafone customer) I got a call back to say a tech would visit the house to remove the cable. And that has just happened.

Cheers,

Jeremy.

Did they charge you for that work? Can you provide information about how others can get this done? I have cables from every provider coming in overhead, I'd really like to get rid of as many as possible.

I didn't agree to any payment, and don't expect to be charged for it. 

Recommendation is to contact each provider and discuss with them.

Cheers,

Jeremy.
