Mikael,

Fiber length is least representative measure of work as it relates to
putting fiber in the ground.  Now, its impressive that they did anything
but if a professional crew took more than a couple of months to do this
they'd be out of a job.  I

'd be much more impressed by a lower distance covered but more homes and
businesses connected or the cabling being ready for connection (ie homes
passed).
