I'm thinking some sort of "eco-terrorists" or anarchists rather than China or Russia. I'd like to know what sort of physical security is protecting these backbone fiber lines. Access seems entirely too easy.

I don't know what kind of physical security you can apply to lines running thousands of miles across the country, including remote areas.

If this becomes a recurring problem, the FBI should get involved. This is more than just local vandalism, it is an attack on interstate commerce.
