sharp. Need help with piercing, notify our supervisor when he visits you 
to discuss the excavation work.

Connection of optical fiber
When the plumbing and piercing are done, please let us know. We then pull 
up the fiber, and our engineers put a note in your mailbox to make an 
appointment for a connection. Inside the wall mounted switch to which you
