Nice - they even wrapped the fiber to keep the wax twine from pinching it.

Some of the telcos around here do (or did) very clean wiring jobs like 
this.  The AT&T Local (TCG from way back in the day) guys who put the OC48 
bay and related breakouts for T1s and DS3s did very neat wiring.

Some of the local old-school Bell Atlantic/Verizon techs also did very 
clean work, but most of them took the early retirement packages that were 
offered 4-5 years ago.
