Samuel Sena of the Santo Domingo Economic and Social Development Council (Codessd) is pushing for attention to the threat that excessive wiring on city streets is causing to the city. The problem is caused by cable TV and telecom companies and their wiring that connect city dwellings in a disorganized manner.



Milton Morrison, the director general of EdeSur, the National District power utility company, met with Sena who pressed for attention to the excessive cabling in the city.

I'm glad this is being addressed. When you see the efforts of beautification in places like the Zone Colonial, it is totally spoiled by the mess of spaghetti dangling from the poles in the street. It really is ugly.

While I agree with you I think it's more than ugly. I think it's a bit dangerous too.

where we have a home in Las Terrenas, the internet cable was down for a week because large trucks would sweep by and take some of the lines down on the narrow street

That’s happened to us multiple times, only it’s our electric wire! We’ve added extensions to raise it higher, but inevitably something takes it down.

In Zona Colonial ,there is no attempt by the electrical company or the TV/telephone companies to improve the situation..posts are at all angles and wires hanging down and all the money given to improve ZC simply disappears .
