Disconnecting Landline Wiring at Telco Box

Post by Uncle-Enrico » Sun Feb 27, 2011 9:26 am

I successfully disconnected the outdoor Telco Box wiring coming from my phone company.

Question: there were two wires:

1. One wire with the standard multi-colored telco thin strands
and
2. One thick wire looking like a ground.

Should that thick wire remain connected or should it be disconnected?

The ground wire should remain connected.
