Everything up to the demarcation point at the property is the 
responsibility of the telco.

 From the demarcation point to the equipment is the responsibility of 
the property owner.

This is why telco's will do the initial install to an outlet, as they 
want your service, but if there are any issues later that are on the 
property side of the demarcation point, they charge for troubleshooting 
and fixing.

If the issue is on the street side of the demarcation point or the 
demarcation point itself, the telco carries the cost.

I have comcast business (to get static IPs) and I had some packet loss 
when they upgraded me to DOCISS3.  They found massive loss in the cable 
under the street.  They had a crew out the next day and pulled a brand 
new cable to my house, no charge.

Now I want to move from he.net IPv6 tunnel to native and I have to bug 
comcast to swap out my modem.  The modem they gave me is the one modem 
on their DOCISS3 support list that doesn't support IPv6. :(
