What happened to underground vaults? In some places they were installing them but I gather the added cost made it cheaper to fight city hall than to cooperate. Luckily neither Verizon or Cablevision use them in my area. -- I support the right to keep and arm bears.
Underground vaults? That's more expensive and takes longer to deploy. What we have here is just another great example of how much more effective and efficient private industry is than government. Imagine how much more money and time it would have taken a government bureaucracy to do this? They don't have shareholders to keep their crazy ideas about neighborhood aesthetics in check and instead make sure things go cheaply and smoothly to provide the revenue generating services customers want.
