Farmers Taking FTTH Into Their Own Hands

September 27th, 2010 by · 1 Comment

Saw this video via the Fibre to the home UK - Fibrevolution blog.  It shows farmers in a rural UK location taking their connectivity into their own hands and putting fiber into the ground over the space of two days.  They had to cut off part of the spool to get it into a hatchback, but that seems to have been the only real hiccup they ran into.  Anyway, for your entertainment:

I think I'd like to help them even out that pie chart.

    Reminds me of the old days back on the 70s. Rural west Texas we did the same thing with copper to break up party lines. We supplied the wire and the ranchers did the work.
