Re: 33?
I hadn't thought of that aspect, but yes I suspect all the good PR is backfiring now. It's almost as though they didn't have an understanding of the real obstacles.

Re: 33?
I wonder if Google's years of PR about it's fiber may be backfiring as they find lots of obstacle and even the good folks of the non-profit world complaining about the lack of progress. The competition is rough and Google's laying off thousands may show just how tough the competition is to break into new territories.

Re: 33?
I expected regulatory issues with Google Fiber expansion. I also thought existing players would push back in some way. Building infrastructure is a lengthy process that requires a lot of paperwork.

Only 33 utility poles? Wow, that would make it hard to offer good fiber service. 

I think Google really had some ambitious plans for their fiber service, only to see that regulatory issues are hard. Software is much easier.
