The fiber is so close to me, yet so far behind the old copper ...
Those huge ugly black covers/splitters are for the cable guys.
ATT has some too farther down, its a mess, with those loop tennis racket looking inline wiring.
The squirrels use the lines to wander the neighborhoods and forage.
So? Fiber will have boxes and cabling also. That probably will not be much better looking.
