              That was the joke. What is an airport doing building infrastructure that requires cables (unless we're talking electricity, but even then you can have backup generators)?

              Anything "life critical" is probably radio operated.

                Hopefully not a single fibre line if that's what you're getting at. If you can take down air traffic control by cutting a single cable then something has gone horribly wrong somewhere, either the designers failed to account for that or it's just shear incompetence.

        how not? you're not running all those communication and coordination systems over the air in an environment that is already dense with radio signals dedicated to making sure planes know their position to the extent that consumer wifi can constitute a legitimate concern

      Ted described this, higher efficiency of complex systems comes with higher fragility. That's because the more components a system is made of, the more vulnerable it is, because each of these parts are vulnerable to a wide range of threats while relying on each others.

        This is one state out of 50. Want to guess how much fiber you'd need to connect anything other than the largest metro areas? I don't. It's a lot. There's a reason it hasn't happened

        Shut the frick up. Landmass is not an excuse when government grants paid for fiber installation across the whole country in the fricking 90's, and paid even more since then. The only reason that America has shit infrastructure is because useful idiots like you would rather die on a hill of excuses than ever admit for even a moment that Americans need to take responsibility for their own frick ups.

        It's about infrastructure. If you're building a railroad or a highway, laying down a fibre cable is basically free bonus.
        >muh landmass
        isn't a sufficient explanation, look at all the highways and roads that were build in the 50s and 60s. The US just lost the ability to build shit like that. Funny anecdote, some French railroad guys went to California to help with some railway project and ended up having their "it's all so tiresome" moment, saying that it was easier to build shit in Africa than this.

              America is bigger than your entire continent. There are thousands of kilometers of empty space dotted by tiny towns and farmlands. Explain how and why there would be fiber lines spanning all those thousands of kilometers, and how it would be funded and maintained. You won't, because you can't, because you can't fathom anything more than a dozen kilometers' travel meaning you're in another state.

                Don't bother. For whatever reason, Americans absolutely refuse to admit that our infrastructure could be a tiny bit better and that there might be the slimmest possibility that other countries do it more efficiently these days. Nope. We have no choice but to let traffic get worse and worse, no choice but to let bridges collapse, no choice but to let powerlines be taken down in storms, no choice but to commute an hour to work and back, no choice at all because we're perfect and no one does anything better than us and we have the ideal system in every way. Improvement is not humanly possible.

            I recently drove from the SF gay area to Eureka and back. 250 miles of hills and old growth redwoods (I can't be fricked to convert this to commie units, do that on your own time). In terms of populated areas, there's Ukiah, which is the big city with a Costco AND WalMart, and a few under-400-population towns. There's nothing else on the entire highway but the trees. Go ahead and tell me how it makes sense to lay fiber there
