Quoting from the article linked to in the summary:

"The CenturyLink-owned cable — actually, a set of cables bundled together in a black jacket a few inches in diameter — was buried several feet under the rocky soil in a dry wash, about a quarter-mile from the nearest houses and a couple of miles from an outlet mall."

So "several feet under the rocky soil" ... that sounds like it'd be a pain to access, unless the dry wash is just rocks and sand.
