Fibre optics to be placed in gas pipes

This is the kind of forward thinking that should be applauded. You might think that it’s an obvious idea but that doesn’t mean the people normally involved in this process would think of it. By using an internal conduit in the gas pipes, fibre can be passed though the pipes giving a 75 percent cost saving. Currently 60 percent of households in rural North Carolina don’t have a computer but the state can obviously see an advantage in this changing.
