See this message from a resident on the 2100 block of Flagler Place NW:
Approximately a week ago Verizon installed this FIOS related mess in an alley behind Flagler PL NW. The box is sitting on the ground and the wires are zip tied to a neighbor's fence. Note that the wires don't even travel down the pole; rather they hang straight down from the cross wires and attach to a fence. Has anyone else seen anything like this? Is it temporary or permanent?
