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. -- Caddy
