Its all a sham. The construction was done by the cubans.. They're good at fiber taps

I do feel this might be the last post from Mr Pooser. :)
Your on to them it seems. ;)
A very interesting idea. I imagine it wouldn't be hard for foreign
actors to get access to the data feed of construction, observe for signs
of a cut and then splice in a tap.
Though wouldn't that tap be found via the real response team?
