In the US as well, but if you're trying to run a new fiber network and
you want it uderground, the sewers in metro areas are a good place to
start. In the rural areas, however, everything is on poles except for
new construction where trenching and conduit are required.
I worked briefly for a small ILEC/CLEC here in Maine that does not
replace copper trunks with copper any longer. If the copper goes bad,
they're running FTTH.
