Re: Finally The Locals Get It

why does it have to be about someone caving in? Google is getting what it wants. It wants to hang fiber and that is the bottom line here.

In Kansas City it was required the that telephone and cable lines be I believe 40 in below the power lines. Google wanted to put the lines in that area. They did not want to follows the rule that the phone and cable had to.
So Google probably agreed to the city terms which is caving in.

Because Google promoted the project as somehow being annointed, and exempted itself from the usual forces of regulation and oversight that make such works complex and slightly more expensive.

There is only so much room on a pole, and it must be implemented in a manner that is safe for all. There are no shortcuts.

that is an actual safety law for all areas. that's why you see the space on poles around the country.
