well.. theres lots of ducting going down streets but not that many folks know 
which of them are the major cable routes, i think keeping specific detail 
discrete is reasonable

in a fire near where i am a couple years ago:

it seemed a bit of a coincidence that both the active and protect paths of a 
major sdh route got hit in this attack and it took out a lot of long distance 
circuits
