Has any thought been given to an underground infrastructure so cables will not be affected by weather?

Yes, and we have determined that a town-wide underground build would be cost-prohibitive, due to the prevalence of stone ledge and the complexities of securing right of ways on private property. It is also important to note that fiber-optic cable is vastly superior to both traditional copper telephone lines and coaxial cable lines, and weather conditions do not cause as severe damage to fiber optics.
