     Warning: For just plain curiosity at the moment.

     I was looking for publicly accessible feasibility studies, white 
papers, etc, about long distance fiber deployment.  (> 400km, aka >250 

     The interest comes from documenting myself about how poorly 
deserved are the northern communities in Canada.  And how "freakn a 
shame it is to get pwned" by France telecom wise =D.

     At this point my Goolge Fu is hardly getting thru the pointless 
clutter search engines accumulated over the years...

     From the numerous input so far:

         A lot of the attempts where made to use facilities like rail or 
electrical grid distribution, but it always ended squashed by a massive 
push back from the telecom industries, and in one case, maybe the FMI.

     I'm thinking:

         If people can invest millions into DOTCOM that put fitbits on 
cows...  There must be a way to help those communities.  And ourself, 
from under the telecom giants.
