Why are you looking to have it removed? Was it replaced by another?

If you look on the pole, there should be a plate that says who it belongs to.

If Verizon, contact 1800Verizon or twitter @verizonsupport

Well if you are in NY you can utilize the bogus NYS Municipal Construction Surcharge Which Verizon uses as the basis of the below the line fee via calling your city, county engineering department. They will either tell you who to call or do it if it is going to cause a serious threat to life or property. But it may not belong to the phone company.

Do you have wires still active on it? Cable, telephone, fiber optics? If so it’s doubtful it will get moved.
