Fiber cut in Ontario, Canada cutsoff @home users

Greets,
	According to a news report this morning there was a fiber cut
which is used to service @Home customers in the province of Ontario.
Apparently, the fiber was cut as thieves were trying to salvage copper.

First, seti@home's facilities were cut off by a similar act of "simple
copper mining" and now it looks like another of the same sort of incident.
I wonder if there are statistics available showing a growing trend of
network outage due to copper theft.  Sean?
