I know how to cut those cables from experience. A customer isn't showing up
with a battery powered Makita to do it. And they don't know where to cut to
do max damage. If they were cutting SLC splice boxes, sure. Not this. IMHO.
These cuts indicate knowledge. I may be wrong. @[email protected]

Your not giving customers enough credit, your a customer yourself
arn't you? Do you know how to cut those cables? Would anyone else on
the list who isn't a disgruntled verizon employee?
