I happen to be driving by workers laying down new cables. I asked them what they were doing and what it is they were laying down. To my surprise, they were putting in new (about 3 inch thick) cable to bury high voltage hydro lines as well as a bundle of fibre optic cable. This was last week on Kootenay near Hastings. What is up with Hydro? I understand the cable for power but what are they doing with fibre?
