No, this is just where they offer it. There was company called Winfirst that started laying fiber under ground in Sacramento and offering it at the same price as DSL and cable. They went under because the cost of digging up the streets was too much. Sure West Broad band purchased that company and started it up again but now only does above ground power poles for distribution. They offer fiber optic TV, phone, and internet. Whole package with like 10 HBO's and like 15 showtimes and other junk is like $100/mo. Plus you can download movies from their servers and watch them on your TV like pay per view but it's individual use only. It just streams in over the fiber to your T.V. Cool stuff, I just happened to luck out that they had it in this area. I have never heard of another place with fiber.
To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
