Man, did you get lucky!
New EPA regulations require that the removal of any wire with a black
jacket and blurry writing in *excess* of 100 feet be approved by your
state's BJWWBWA (Black Jacketed Wire With Blurry Writing
Failure to obtain approval prior to beginning the removal could result
in a maximum penalty of $50 per foot and the on-site storage of the
offending BJWWBW for up to 24 months.
It's a good thing that you only removed 100 feet.
You need to learn to give more data in your questions so people can
give more educated responses rather than wild ass guesses.
Saying you "pulled 100 feet of this" gives very little data. Saying
you pulled it from the ground, from the attic, between panels, from a
well, from an antenna, or any of a hundred more possible places would
narrow the responses considerably.
If the wire is stranded it is most likely TV cable if it is solid more
that likely its phone wire. My bet is on TV cable even though it may
be solid. There was some made. The reason being the colored insulation
in the middle of the cable. I have seen some like this before. TV
cable tended to be more oval while telephone cable was more square. At
least this goes for the stuff I have had experience with.
