Here are a couple of pictures I saw of a mast where the service drop is below the eave of the building. So what do you do? You just cut a hole in the roof/eave and pass the service drop right through it. The siding was aluminum and it looked sharp:
Let's face it, these days if you're not young, you're old - Red Green
My guess would also be that the mast and service was there first. Then some roofers added the soffet and cut holes for the service drop. Then they wonder what they did wrong when they get shocked and fall off scaffolds. Go Figure!

That pipe has either got to go a few feet higher above the roof line, or put a 90º bend before the roof line and run it out to the edge of the building (to the left of where it is now). The way that thing looks now is shameful.
