There is a national group forming to create wifi backbones in major regions,
non-commercial stuff but should be interesting to see what happens

Of course it can. There are no practical impediments, only political
ones. I'm wondering why it was OK to string cable all over Wellie, but
when Telstra was going to do the same here, the NIMBY mayors all stopped
Actually resistence set into Saturn in Wellington, too, especially
once they started cabling the rich neighbourhoods, like Roseneath.
For a while we had "action committees" trying to get existing cable
buried. They got off a bit easier here because so much is already
above ground - whining about Saturn cable looks a bit patethic if
you're in a street that already has trolley bus cables.
yeah they were dumb. every utility engineer knew you could run overhead
anywhere in Wgtn, BUT NOT Roseneath and Wadestown. Saturn had US Cable TV
guys doing what Cable tv guys do - just run cable.
