Re: Same old same old
Same thing here in the rural areas of parts of Canada.
Except we have wooden 'telephone poles' where the power, copper and now FibreOP lines are strung. Up in the air, no trenches.
When the fiber optic crew came through in 2014, they moved so fast that the safety crew couldn't keep up.
Huge multi-acre lots in the forest. Up to Gb FibreOP service. It's sweet.
Some companies have figured out the business model, others haven't.
