Underground Costs And Installation Trade-Offs (1972)

By George R. McGrory, Burnup & Sims Inc.

Let's look at some of the reasons why underground installations are increasing in the communication industry. The public is getting disturbed by the unsightly pole lines and the miles and miles of wire. This is causing the public to become insistent for underground installations. Today, better public relations are created by placing your facilities underground. You're the "good guy." Also on the plus side, you will reduce possible damage to your facilities from storms -- such as ice and snow in the north, hurricanes and tornadoes in other parts of the country. You also have a more stable facility, due to the constant temperature range found below ground as compared with the variances encountered in an aerial installation.
