Honestly? Can't kill this zombie? I thought fibre to the home was
finally going to put this one to bed - you can push far more bandwidth
down a glass pipe than a copper one anyway, with far less interference
to OR FROM people like us, emergency services, radio astronomy, etc, not
to mention better EMP resiliency.

Perhaps FTTH isn't easy enough to wiretap?   :-(
