RE: IP over in-ground cable applications.

Thanks for the response. The 'Broadband' in Broadband Laboratories
actually refers to the Microwave flavor of last-mile and long-haul data
transmission. As a general operating philosophy, we eschew wired
last-mile network solutions (DSL, Cable) as inefficient, costly to
capitalize, and costly to maintain. For example, the local cable
company spent over $100m for an HFC buildout of our local market which
only covered 30% of the metropolitan area. I could probably cover 25 of
the top metropolitan markets with that kind of capital :)

Yes Chris, it's called DOCSIS. I would think that a CIO of a company
named "Broadband Labs" would have a lab in which to experiment with

What about the neighborhoods with above-ground cable, how would you
deliver service to them?
