running through Huntington, WV and Ashland, KY, marked with AT&T Death Star
tags to boot. The pre-SBC merger logo and the fact it runs through
Frontier (ex-Verizon, ex-GTE) territory definitely seems to indicate that
it's long haul, though I don't know if goes back to "Long Lines" days,
depending on when you believe that era truly ended. FWIW, the route does
NOT show up on Blake's 1993 TMRS maps, so it was probably put in some time
in the 1990s or early 2000s.
It's funny because it appears the person who designed the tags did a little
cut and paste from the standard buried cable markers. There's a gap where
they deleted the warning that says "do not dig anywhere in this area" but
it still warns that "violators are subject to prosecution." Violators of
what? It also gives a phone number to call for location of the cable, like
you can't just look up on the pole and see it there.
