nede?  You mean need? 

I dont feel its fragile, stuff happens. You can't provide a service nationwide that cannot ever have a cut cable. Look at submarine cables that have been severed overseas. Rare, but it happens

Cable/Duct routes are very well documented. In the case of UFB installs they go and actually get all the services plotted out too. But all the documentation in the world doesn't stop a digger driver "who's been doing it for years" not checking and just ripping in to things.

Maybe we should resurrect the stocks for those who don't RTFM before digging up roads.
