"Telus crews were replacing six kilometres of cable last week due to damage done by resident woodpeckers. For some reason they seem attracted to the cable. The new cable, with a price tag of $130,000 is double-armoured so they shouldn't have this problem in the future. Telus had been receiving some complaints of static in the phone lines as well as degraded high speed internet connections, which they expect this repair to clear up. "
God love them.. I think that is so funny. Woodpeckers pecking on the phone lines. Not the phone poles. The holes hold water hence the damage. No wonder we thought our high speed connection was slower than it should be.....
