That last image looks fine to me - it has plenty of service loops to ensure service continuity.
You could probably even work on it without a harness, the cables would keep you up there securely.

Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.

Ha, looks like a Thanos style finger snap has removed the pole leaving the network in place 😋


Jokes aside @kiwiharry please follow up on my DM and pass through the address. We need to sort that out because it should not have been left like that.........

On a shared driveway and have the cable parallel to the footpath and cutting across the driveway entrance. Its sticking out of the pitiful trench, just like in the OP's photo. Doesn't see much foot-traffic across it, but lots of car tires and wheelie bins once a week. All it would take is for someone walking by to reach down and tear it out of the ground (with little effort since its barely patted down with grit).


Still a VDSL household at this point...
