I walked out my door and saw this truck with a big spool of cable. Fiber, I wondered? I asked the driver what it was and he said it was fiber, for AT&T. You may not be able to tell in the second photo they were running the fiber cable from the top of the hill to the bottom of the block, underneath the street. This was on Scott Street between Fulton and McAllister in Alamo Square near downtown SF.
What does it mean? Could AT&T be planning to roll out fiber for my neighborhood? U-Verse already boasts of fiber but I think that is some kind of phony gimmick, since the speed they offer is suspiciously just like DSL speeds and well short of what Comcast gives us. But I digress.
Anyone know the real deal here?
