    They're after the copper. :D

    Disgruntled employee is the most plausible you've listed IMO.

    My guess is it's the same reason why people carve "f- you" in picnic tables, break windows in bus shelters & tag stuff that doesn't belong to them. They're idiots.

    I'm thinking more disgruntled employee, too. It takes a good deal of effort to dig down to reach fiber optic cables. I could understand your bog standard idiot vandal doing it once, maybe twice. But they've done it what? Four or five times now?

    Yeah, that's someone with a grudge.

    It could be any of those things, or it could just be a **** who likes screwing with people cause they can. (never underestimate the human capacity to be a ****)

    Frankly I am surprised that extremists have not gone after the internet infrastructure. In any case, this is most likely a disgruntled employee.

    But there isn't anything the government can do to take away our freedom to counter it so they'd much rather go after airplanes and other transportation systems.
