This morning when I left for work I was delighted to find bright yellow markings all over the ground in front of the houses on our street. The markings all ran back to the fiber optic junction box next to the sidewalk.
Eric R. and I first discovered the box (which is fully connected to an actual fiber strand, but isn't being used yet) a few weeks ago. It looks like Verizon is finally getting around to running lines from the junction box to the houses.
I can almost smell the bandwidth!
