Finally got around to seeing your pictures. Thanks for posting them.

I find it surprising that your area doesn't have a CO and those DSLAMS are just sitting outside!

That pedestal, what you called a riser, is in rough shape. If it was to be replaced it would be with the new plastic ones.

There is a CO but it is a bit farther away from me (5 miles in a straight line about, 10 or more by road though). afaik most DSLAMs in rural areas look like that :/
But yeah, that pedestal hasn't had proper maintenance for about 18 years i bet....

yeah so i don't have any internet right now because the crews laying the fiber tube tore the whole darn phone line bundle out of the ground. Telco says they should have this fixed in 5 days:

Aaaaaand they just got it fixed up! one cool thing though, i was out watching them working on the line and a neighbor came by to ask some questions. i got to talking to her and she said she would definitely support installation of fiber service since she runs an on-line business (on the same 1.5mbit DSL eek.gif)

not much really, according to the port's last meeting minutes report, the whole project is ~34% completed with just over half of the allocated funds used. the contractor said that this was due to the rock that was encountered in much of the area that has already been done, and that the rest of the area to be worked was mostly softer ground that should make up for it.
The fiber optic cable itself is actually on back-order and is reported to be arriving sometime around the end of February, so were still probably 6 months away from the possibility of actually even getting anything.....
im not sure how they'll go about it but i would guess that they may start lighting fiber shortly after getting it in the ground, but theres probably alot of specifics circulating around that.

The project is actually known as a Dark fiber line, though i would consider it more of a grey fiber line.

there will be 144 strands in the tube (as i said before) and some of those strands will be dedicated for the anchor points in the towns that the line passes to, and the one at the other end of the line.

one plus i learned about is that there will be a reapeater station halfway along the route, which means that the lines effective usable area can be doubled or concentrated (you can use a single line in 2 places, if that makes sense)

Can't your neighbour sign herself up as a business, and you and a few other neighbors run lines to a network in her house and help split the fees? smile.gif

Your "slow" DSL is considered blazing fast where I live.

They started laying some tubing for the local access line tube (i think, i heard the main line was going to be buried in the middle of the road, and this is on the side) yesterday, so here are some pics:
