How is the outside plant being built and supported?  Who fixes fiber cuts? 
Who manages the fiber-cut-fixers?  Who monitors the network and handles 
initial triage to determine if there is a fiber cut, as opposed to a 
hardware/optic failure?

Those questions lead to many others, such as who has documentation and 
as-built drawings for the fiber plant?  Are all of the access agreements, 
insurance certificates, letters of agency, etc. up to date and accurate?
