And, for  both CATV and phone, their interest is in protecting *their* 
physical  plant, not yours.  You are the sacrificial element in their  
protection system.

An interesting point.
Does anyone know if the cable and phone companies are REQUIRED to tie their  
ground to the ground at the service entrance?
Mine are not.
Several months ago my tower took a lightning hit and everything tied to the  
phone and cable lines was *killed*. I wonder if not having their grounds tied  
into the power co's is the reason.
