AT&T digging up the neighborhood
By davidleetodd on Oct 03, 2007
A contracted telco crew put fliers on everyone's house in our neighborhood today. They said, "There will be buried utility placing operations in this community from 10-4-07 to 10-31-07 appx. This project is to provide enhanced offerings and services to customers of AT&T." Egad! Could this be the advent of fiber optic cable in our neighborhood? One can only hope. I called the contractor for confirmation, but they haven't called back yet. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Update: I went outside just now and talked to the young guy running the jackhammer. He pulled his earplugs out, and confirmed that they're laying fiber optic cable. He said he has it in his house, and it's like lightning. Awesome. I can hardly wait. It also shows that fiber isn't just for geeks.
