This particular cable is high pair count with an armor. Across the street, there are two long pieces dangling from above. One piece is the outside jacket while the other is the metal armor...which had separated from the jacket.

If anything, I'd love to cut the intact piece in front of the first anchor point and use it to whack people upside the head when they need it. grin

I have a couple of pieces of the Rural Drop Wire/Cable mentioned. smile
