What is the average weight of a telephone pole?
We were just told, by the City of Austin's utility pole contractor, that the weight of a utility pole (much like a telephone pole) is 700 pounds. Hope this information is of some help to the telephone weight query. - Austin, Texas USA

Since most personal auto insurance policies (actually, this goes for most commercial auto policies, too) don't have a property damage deductible, the most you would have to pay is your own deductible for the repairs to your vehicle, plus any betterment your carrier applies to the damaged components …of your vehicle. So, say you have full coverage on your 1995 Honda Accord with a $100.00 deductible. You hit a pole in a parking lot, bending the pole. Your carrier will pay for all of the pole damage. Since the damages to your vehicle are $1000.00, your carrier will pay $900.00. If, however, you had prior damage on, say, the bumper that hit the pole, your carrier might deduct up to 50% for the replacement cost of that bumper. If they use used or copycat parts, they might not take that deduction. Or they might take off a little from your payment for scratched paint, etc. this happened to my wife. We paid the standard deductable and our insurance covered all the cost. We got bills from the electric company but they were all paid by our insurance. ( Full Answer )
A weighted average multiplies each data point by an arbitrary 'weight' and divides by the sum of the weights. Your everyday garden variety average, or arithmetic mean, is actually a special case of a weighted average, except all the weights are equal to 1. Selection of weights are largely arbitrar…y but generally based on sound reasoning (e.g. relative population sizes). As another example, let's say you have 5 reviewers of a product giving their overall satisfaction rating. The scores are 9, 7, 6, 7, 3. However you have a very high regard for Reviewer 1 so you assign her a weight of 15 (and the others remain at weight=1). The average score is (9+7+6+7+3)/5=6.4 The weighted average score is (15*9+7+6+7+3)/(15+4)=8.3 The weighted average is much closer to Review 1's opinion due to your weighting decision. The weight is often NOT arbitrary as in the above example. If a bank wants to know the average interest rate for its portfolio, the weight is the principal balance of each loan. If there are only two loans, one for $999,990 at 6% and one for $10 at 12%, the AVERAGE RATE is 9% [(6 + 12)/2]. However, the weighted average rate is only 6.00006% [(((.06*999990)+(.12*10))/1000000)]. ( Full Answer )
Telephone Poles, at least the old wooden ones, come in three sizes... 30ft, 60ft, and 90ft. When one is installed, 1/3 of it is buried into the ground, so that means that the part above ground would be 20ft, 40ft, and 60ft high. (This is for the United States, only.) The newer Cement and/or… Steel ones are more customizable.. ( Full Answer )

Yes and no. First, a history on poles. The reason we call them telephone poles is they were first used and paralleled train tracks and were called telegraph poles. This was pre 1900. Since then, electricity or power lines were strung up on these same poles and power poles, which are owned by the pow…er company. If a pole has both power and telephone on them, they are called joint-use poles and utility companies that own the poles can charge other utilities to use them for a yearly fee per pole. Nowadays, most poles are joint use and carry power, telephone and cable television on them and unless your power is fed by underground or buried power lines, your computer gets the power it needs from these type poles. The exception to this is a battery powered laptop, but these still get recharged by the same source. ( Full Answer )

The newer Cement and/or… Steel ones are more customizable. new Telephone poles come 20, 30, 35, 40, 45 feet long with other sizes by special order. We used mostly 30 and 35 foot poles. or a 45 for clearance The dug hole for these were usually 4-1/2 foot for 20 and 30s. Slightly deeper, closer to 5 feet deep for 35 and maybe 40s. Diameter sizes were usually 5 or 6. 9 being the smallest diameter, I did see a 10 one time. A 9 that was 20 feet was about the width of one boot (no, not foot) at the top. A 1 was seen more as a power pole, you could not reach the back of these with your arms extended and had to climb using the sides until you could reach the back, they could be 55, 65, 75, 90 or higher.

WHO pays for the installation of power and telephone lines to a property that is in a rural area (far from existing utility services) has long been an area of disputes and complaints. Most utility companies in the USA are regulated and the amounts they charge and the items they can charge for are li…sted in contracts called TARIFFS. It is the fine print in the tariffs that regulates when and how much they can charge for certain services. Tariffs may differ between residential and commercial accounts. In some instances the utility comapny will bring service a fixed distance from their existing facilities and the customer has to pay for the rest. In some areas the customer has to pay for the whole thing. ( Full Answer )
They are used when repairs are being performed on a communications line. The lines are filled with nitrogen or dried air. Pressurizing the lines keeps moisture out of the lines preventing crosstalk between pairs in the line. The lines are normally pressurized at the central office but if a line need…s to be repaired or spliced, they will bring out the cylinders. ( Full Answer )

Different length poles, up to 120 feet (36.6 m ) or more, are used to satisfy clearance requirements, but the standard utility pole in the US is about 40 feet (12.2 m) long and is buried about 6 feet (1.8 m) in the ground, for a height above ground of about 34 feet (10.4 m).  They are space…d about 125 feet (38 m) apart. Joint use poles are usually owned by one utility, which leases space on it for other cables. In the USA the National Electrical Safety Code, published by the IEEE , sets the standards for construction and maintenance of utility poles and their equipment.. Most utility poles are made of wood, pressure-treated with some type of preservative for protection against rot, fungi and insects. Southern Yellow Pine is the most widely used species in the United States, however many species of long straight trees are used to make utility poles, including Douglas fir , Jack Pine , Lodgepole Pine , Western Red Cedar and Pacific Silver Fir . Traditionally the preservative used was creosote , but due to environmental concerns, alternatives such as pentachlorophenol , copper naphthenate and borates are becoming widespread in the US. For over 100 years the American Wood Protection Association (AWPA) has developed the standards for preserving wood utility poles. Despite the preservatives, wood poles decay and have a life of approximately 25-50 years, depending on climate and soil conditions, therefore requiring regular inspection and remedial preservative treatments.    Other common utility pole materials are steel and concrete, with composites ( fibreglass ) also becoming more prevalent. One particular patented utility pole variant, used in Australia , is the Stobie pole . ( Full Answer )

Telephone poles are just wood poles that hold the telephone cable,the telephone terminal and telephone drops, (wires going to individual houses) in the air and out of the way. Areas that have no poles usually are newer areas, they have the same type wires only they are buried in the ground.
The telephone pole may exist as a light stanchion. There are no land-line telephones in Antarctica, even on the US bases.
Weigh it. If it just a close number you are needing then. Get on a scale see why your weight is then pick it up and get back on the scale. The difference is the weight of the pole.
Usually 8 inches at the bottom and tapers to 5 0r 6 at the top
Technically, no, it is not. The telephone and power poles are the private property of the utilities that own them. Some jurisdictions actually have ordnances against it, mainly due to the hazard created to linemen climbing the poles amidst a clutter of signs, staples, and old nails.
YES. Depending on your weight you will need a certain type of pole. For example, if you weigh 180 lbs you cannot use a pole that is for people who weigh 120 lbs otherwise you would most likely break it. To discover the weight limitation on poles you can look at the top of the pole where there will m…ost likely be a sticker saying "120" or something like that. ( Full Answer )

Since the South Pole does not belong to any country, it does not have any telephone country code. The research bases in or near Antarctica either have telephone numbers within the numbering ranges of their host countries, or use global satellite telephones.
because for expansion and contraction. A2 There is enough tension in the wire to keep the sag to a minimum. The sag is known as a 'catenary'. If they were tensioned enough to remove the catenary, the strain would be too much for the wire and the poles. The poles would bend and the wire would break.… The sag is a compromise. ( Full Answer )

How long is a piece of string? Telephones can vary from about 25 grams, to well over a kilogram. I'd say newer mobile phones would weigh between 75-400 grams, depending on the model, and year of make.
When a pole shifts with the earth it will pull the wires apart and cause a break somewhere in the line. The poles are meant to suspend the wires in air, not to stretch them... Accurate answer is the lines will break. While breaking is not normally due to poles shifting, that could happen. The …reason the wires are slung loosely is because of the expansion and contraction properties of the metal wires. If you look at the lines in the winter, they do not sag much (are tighter) and in the summer the sag is pronounced (looser). If they were strung tightly, they would eventually break during the cold weather. ( Full Answer )
When its winter the wires will contract (shrink) the extra wire will reduce the risks of tearing it.
Which is it, a power pole or a telephone pole? Contact the company that installed it and notify them that you believe that it is misplaced. Most utility company's lease their poles to the telephone companies so that two sets of poles don't have to be run parallel to each other. This being the c…ase the telephone lines go where the utility lines go. If on the other hand it is a private telephone pole on private property that the utility company set for you, then the onus is on you to stake the exact placement where you want the pole to go and have someone on site when the digging starts to make sure that the pole is situated where you want it.

Yes, The liability portion of your auto insurance policy will cover the damages you may do to a telephone pole in an accident.
Depends on the speed you are traveling, what kind of car you are in, where on the car you hit, what the telephone pole is made out of and how well it was anchored. If you hit a wooden, leaning telephone pole in a large SUV head-on at 50mph, you will probably be okay (but with injuries, total your ca…r and tip the pole, leaving live wires lying all over the place, which is bad). However, if you crash into a metal telephone pole in a small sedan head on traveling 50 miles an hour, you could sustain serious injuries and die. Always wear your seatbelt. If you hit anywhere on the side, from skidding perhaps, traveling at any appreciable velocity, you had better hope that it's the passenger side and that you don't have a passenger, because it could very likely crush and kill them. If you hit it fast enough, as demonstrated in a picture I saw once of an Audi R8, if you hit the pole sideways fast enough, it will tear your car in half. ( Full Answer )
