NID Grounding

Does a NID have to be grounded? I had a friend install a second phone line in my house, and he says the NID was not grounded on the "Telephone Company Access" side. I want to confirm if this is supposed be grounded or not before calling my local phone company and asking them to fix it...

According to Telephone Company practices and NEC guidelines all telecommunications circuits must be properly protected and grounding of the protector assembly / NID is required.

Just call it in as "Network Interface not grounded". It'll be dispatched on when workload permits. That is, if there are customers out of service, they'll get covered first, then your request.

It shouldn't take long for a tech to fix that small problem.
