I think the Artic Fiber project is designed to alleviate that problem in the Northwest. It was incorporated into a larger project to connect the three continents. I know one of the founders, Mike Cunningham.

Subject: Friday musing - Long distance fiber deployment resources
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.
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.
