Tantilizingly Close

In the ongoing saga of running fiber optic cable to my home (for high-speed Internet, digital telephone, and video services) things moved one step closer to completion this week.

I watched with excitement as a third construction crew showed up in our neighborhood and then began running the fiber optic cable though my yard, from the distribution canister to my house.

Then I realized they were just taunting me. Although the cable is now run to my house, it is merely leaning against the outside wall of my abode — they did not install an interface box.

Apparently, another crew will need to do that. I don’t know when that will be or if that will mean they are ready to connect me — but I am certainly ready to be connected.

As the saying goes, “Good things take time.”
