Why? Simple really TIA. It will be stolen. Led by example and all that. You need an armed escort to do your job, even one to do something simple like put petrol in your car.:(

Chris Nel from Lambda Test Equipment said when work needs to be done on high-priority links, you have to do it between midnight and 04:00.

To ensure this happens safely, operators are dispatching security guards with teams, while guards have been placed at certain key connectivity areas targeted by criminals.
And thus starts the cycle.... cable is damaged so that a team comes out, so that they can be robbed.

If I was a fibre operator I would sabotage my competitors so that I gain an advantage in certin areas
