So I'm moving to a new home soon that recently had a utility pole installed by Cleco that has underground electrical wire going to my home. I'm not sure if the pole currently only has electric line going to it or if they also pulled line capable of telephone service. I'll soon be trying to get DSL service and was told by CenturyLink (the telephone/DSL provider company here) that it would be the "utility company's" responsibility to pull telephone wire to my pole if it doesn't currently have any (I thought they ARE the telephone utility company?).

So I was just curious if anyone here could tell from this picture if this pole currently has wiring for telephone service or not and who is usually responsible for putting it if it doesn't?

That is electricity only . As I understand it , the telephone company or it's authorized contractor are responsible for running their service wire .

Thanks for the reply. I'm getting conflicting information on their coverage. I've already been shot down by the cable company and now the telephone company is telling me different things depending on who I speak with. I know someone nearby has service because I can catch their wifi signal.

This is the pole that my property's pole is pulling from, I'm pretty sure the lower wire(s) is telephone wire, right?: Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

There is definitely telephone wire on that pole . It's too fuzzy to make out any Cable TV wire .

If you need/want high speed internet and cable/DSL isn't available then you would have to consider satellite internet.
