Internet Coax Disconnected Outside

Came home late last night to find online light extinguished on modem. All other lights are on. I traced the coax line to the outside box, opened it and found the coax was disconnected. Apparently a technician had connected someone else in my spot, but I don't know which splitter within the box belongs to my apartment. 

Went to Xfinity app to set up an appt. and sorely disappointed that it will take 4 days to get a technician here to connect a freakn coax!

This is horribly unacceptable bevavior by any technician. Pure laziness!

Thank you. The technician arrived this morning and ensured service was restored. Yes, another technician did disconnect my service this week in order to connect a new customer, but was too lazy to provide another splitter so that each customer could be accomodated with service. He or she felt it was expedient at the time to free up one splitter by removing my coax. At any rate, the tech this morning did fail to put all of coax connections back in the boxes. All of the connections are exposed to the elements. Due to some rain earlier this morning, I'm sure he didn't want to be in harm's way. I hope he intends to get back here to get all of the exposed cables into the box.
