Fellow SWAC blogger Fishersville Mike picked up on my post about running fiber optics aka high speed internet with the Atlantic Coast Pipeline that is proposed to be buried from West Virginia through Virginia to North Carolina (see What if Dominion Virginia Power ran high speed internet with Atlantic Coast Pipeline?).
