Dove Season - Shoot Birds, Not Fiber
10:28AM September 01, 2020
It's a sport that many are involved in, but the last thing a dove hunter would think about when pulling their trigger is the amount of cash they may have to pull out of their pocket if shooting the wrong thing. The fee for damaging a fiber wire can cost a hunter up to $10,000. We will go to the landowner and ask who had permission to hunt, who was hunting and we will pursue the person who actually shot the fiber to try to reclaim the associated damages for the repair. When the fiber optic cable is accidentally shot, the pellets from the gun easily harm the glass fibers inside. A shot gun blast could cause many GoSEMO Fiber subscribers to be off-line, which means they will lose service for their internet, their television and their telephone services for approximately six to 12 hours.
