What does above-ground vs. below ground have to do with delivering MPEG2??
I have digital cable with MPEG2 video, my cable Internet access (DOCSIS
compliant), and analog cable stations even though the cable in my
neighborhood is underground (as are all the utilities) and immediately
outside my neighborhood by the main road all the utilities appear to go
back up onto poles to get anywhere. It might just be a misleading illusion
but I think it runs above ground to get to the cable company's office as do
the phone lines which I know for a fact. The cable company that services
the area where I work is talking about rolling out digital cable soon and
all of the people in their service area have above ground utilities
including cable. Am I obsessing and were you just being sarcastic or is
there a technical reason why you stated this?

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