Not much competition really, the wireless providers buy the fiber from the same companies as the regular consumers. So, when someone digs for any reason we try to maximize reach in that area. There's also a kind of gentleman's agreement between utility providers (water, electrical, fiber, roadworks etc) that they announce for others if they're planning to be digging somewhere. Others can join in and share the total cost of the dig.
