Report unburied cables, exposed wires, or downed lines

Let us know if you find downed or uncovered wires or cables in your area.


ArticleDETAILED INFO

Downed or obstructed lines

Did you find drooping wires, downed lines, or AT&T equipment in a yard or on the street? Let us know. Call us anytime at 800.288.2020.
  • Have AT&T service? Provide your account info and say, “Line is down.”
  • Don’t have AT&T service? Say "No account." When asked if you want to order new service, say "No." Then, to let us know why you're calling, say “Line is down.”  

Heads up: Extreme weather or other factors can bring down lines, including electrical lines. Never approach a downed wire yourself. Always call your local authorities in an emergency.

Some utility companies mark or paint their lines. If you see a marked line with an exposed cable or wire, and it doesn’t say AT&T, be sure to report it directly to that company.
