Part of it will depend on what support systems they put in place. If 
they don't have a maintenance strategy, the reliability will suffer. 
I don't know how resilient fibre is, though. It is glass, but may be 
quite flexible in the strands in cables. At least they won't be 
subject to backhoes. ;-)
