Our house was built in 1922 and everything is still overhead - Cable, Phone, Electricity. The first houses on the street are from the late 1800s, but most were built in the 1920s. They recently upgraded the area to 14.4kV (overhead).

It's worth noting that in BC, underground areas usually have conduit, in Aberta, cable is usually direct burried. Hence, in Alberta, for the last several years, the phone company has been placing hybrid drops, with both copper and fiber. Areas with all-hybrid drops are cheapest to upgrade, then underground conduit, then aerial, then direct burried w/o hybrid drops.

Most older areas will tend to be undreground, and newer areas will be aerial.

"Most older areas will tend to be undreground, and newer areas will be aerial."

Don't you mean the other way around?
