Rural Fiber Optic Cable
Just stopped and had a discussion with an AT&T tech working with a group of underground cable installers. Everyone on our street here in Windsor SC was excited to finally see high speed fiber optic cable being buried. I stopped to ask if they were putting in the cable for the entire street. He replied that one address had paid for over a mile of fiber optic cable to be buried just so they could have high speed internet. I asked the tech if he knew when everyone else would have access and he said he didn't know when or how long. This is great for the one address but why wouldn't AT&T just go ahead and lay enough cable to serve the entire Cadle Crossing street since they were already burying cable? This situation may have in fact delayed getting access for everyone even longer out of fear of being accused by this one address of being taken advantage of. This doesn't make any sense. I guess it's just about the money and not a community in need of high speed internet access.
