said by BUCKEYECOM :Fiber is costly to deploy. My new ISP is deploying fiber in select cities, but mine is 17th on their list.
why use copper? After all DSLR promotes Fiber. But we all know these 3rd party resellers only know how to use copper and soon will fall apart. But ever heard of put it under ground? And I also said they could use WiMax or some other wireless median too.
My ISP is a third party reseller; somewhat. My current service, however, is not resold ILEC service, though it does rely on ILEC copper. Which, BTW, is less than two years old (though the neighborhood is closer to 47 years old).
When this neighborhood was built, around 1965, local ordinance only required that the utility poles not be set on the streets. The utilities in this county have slowly been burying the lines on arterial streets. As they can set aside the capital to do so. They may never get to the point of burying all the aerial suburban housing lines.
