Oddly enough I wasn't given an actual name for the process & this (Arizona) is apparently the 1st system in the US to try this out on a large scale basis.
It's for both, the distribution to the cabinets will be fiber as well, but not necessarily using existing coax.
You need to call your local Public Utility Commission & complain. It's the only thing that can force a regional monopoly to get off of their ass & do something.
I'm currently working on a project for Cox Communications in which they are chemically dissolving the foam inside of the coaxial cable conduit & then air blowing fiber through the newly created space inside the conduit. Pretty cool stuff. This avoids the costs associated with permitting, digging new trench & burying separate fiber conduit & they can use the DWDM hardware they already have on hand instead of buying new systems like this.
Personally I love my Buffalo routers running DD-WRT. I'm pretty sure you can run Tomato on them too, but I thought it wasn't maintained anymore.
What Snowden has done was get his passport revoked by the US state department, but hey, let's not let facts get in the way of your stupid fucking comparison.

That has got to be the single worst attempt at a straw-man I've ever seen. Did you even read what he wrote?
I gotta admit, as a kid I liked the 2 CRPG "GoldBox" versions of Buck Rodgers.
I should have been more clear. I don't remember all of the particulars, but I couldn't even get the port of Alpha Centauri running on Kubuntu 12.04.
There are a few GoG games that have known Linux ports already, like Unreal Tournament 2004. Personally, I hope we see a modernized Alpha Centauri Linux port on GoG soon. The Icclus one doesn't seem to fare to well on modern systems.
I had forgotten NetFlix still mailed DVDs.
Companies that do these mass layoffs should be banned from utilizing H1B visa employees for one month per employee terminated.
One of the most fair, hard-working & awesome people I know was born & raised in East Germany. She was also one of the first people over the wall when it came down. I've worked with her for 19 years & I'm pretty sure she'd have an exception to this "study".
