I don't see any reason to knock ice off a utility wire. Whether power line, phone line or, cable line, they are all reinforced and designed to hold up to ice and wind loads. When power lines break during ice storms it is almost always due to a tree branch loaded with ice/snow that breaks off and falls on the wire.

The weight of snow is pretty insignificant compared to the weight of the conductors. Ice might start to become significant, but what chiral wrote is certainly true.
