Coincidentally, AT&T is up to something right now a few feet from me.
They have a cable truck going up and down the street attaching a new
cable to the front pole set (also carries Time Warner Cable trunk, and
high voltage Edison feed lines). Attachments in this precise area are
at the rear of houses, underground to a buried ~50-year-old AT&T
copper cable, overhead drops for DWP power and TWC. So this new AT&T
line is almost certainly a fiber trunk. Like a hibernating bear
awoken, once AT&T starts moving around you have to keep your eyes open
and your wits about you.

I have consulted to Google, but I am not currently
doing so -- my opinions expressed here are mine alone.

The correct term is "Internet" NOT "internet" -- please don't
fall into the trap of using the latter. It's just plain wrong!
