Fiber Optic Cable

FBI Investigates Another Critical Infrastructure Attack in Greater San Francisco

On Monday, September 14, unknown suspects cut backbone fiber optic Internet cables in Livermore California in what appears to be the fourteenth attack on critical communications infrastructure in a region of the U.S. that is a primary target for economic and cyber warfare.  Internet and phone services in Sacramento California were interrupted for twenty hours. The attack is a federal issue because AT&T’s fiber optic network is considered to be part of the nation’s critical communication’s infrastructure. This most recent attack prompted AT&T to offer a 250 million dollar reward for information on the attack. This comes after 11 previous attacks on telecom infrastructure.

    People steal wire in 3rd world countries. Which is what 1st world countries become when you let them be invaded by 3rd world people.

      Only a moron would steal a fibre optic cable in an attempt to cash in on its precious metal content.

        There was a TTC employee from the Subway Station near me that was caught stealing about $30,000.00 in Copper wiring to sell for scrap.
        Bob Kinnear managed to protect this person by excusing away the thefts because they had an Addiction to on-line Poker and Drugs where his near $60,000.00 a year salary wasn’t enough to pay for this Disability .
        The people in management and the Unions at the TTC still think it’s THEIR money funding the system and not the Taxpayers in Ontario.

        I know it seems OT , but what if employees had debts and were open to a sabotage to their own Employers Fibre Optic system by the Competition to make it look bad and win over the irate customers that are ripe to defect even if they were loyal .

        If it’s a T4 or T5 cable , then we have some serious level attacks because the T1 thru T3 is the customer delivery system that would only hurt those subscribers in that sector just as a Power transform over loading and shutting down would cut the power to those on the section of the Grid for residential power.

        Have you ever met Maurixio?

    • The reward amount is $250 thousand, not $250 million.

      The raw material for fiber optic cable has no salvage value.

        True, the thugs will be invited to the White House because these people are just another one of Obama perceived Oppressed groups that are provoked by some root-cause linked the White privilege to have Hi-speed Internet while their are so many homeless people and Blacks in poverty.

        This is how Imam Obama’s brain works after being steep in anti-west Marxism .
