Re: Homebrew DSL

The "gansta's" will have it cut down and "recycled" within a few hours.
Seriously though, they scrap everything now. In the olden days, a dead cable might linger in the underground forever. After TA96 they wanted to make sure the ducts were not available for "competitors" (facilities based CLECs). The CLECSs got a ruling on that, so the telco's had to remove any dead cables.
There are probably still some 4800 pair cables with 2 or 3 air pressure circuits working on them.
Realistically, most everything copper goes to the scrappers. They pay the phone company for being allowed to come in and remove the cables.
