There’s a cable in my yard or draped over my fence, what is it?

Answer from Allo: This is a temporary fiber drop. Our team will return soon to establish a permanent and less intrusive location for the cable. Weather can sometimes play a role in this process and if delays occur ALLO will notify you with an updated timeframe for permanent drop construction. If your fiber is installed during winter months when the ground is frozen, you may have a temporary drop until the spring. If your existing utilities are underground, ALLO will follow the same path.
