If you think the Internet is a cesspool you haven’t seen anything yet. A UK firm called H2O plans to wire a town in the UK with super-fast fibre Internet access with speeds of up to 100Mbps. They plan to wire the city swiftly and on the cheap by routing the needed cabling through the cities sewers.

According to the BBC that means the cabling can be ran without needing to tie up traffic or dig roads up. The firm installing the cabling says it would be delivered to individual homes via a 4-inch box attached to the house.
A company official said that deploying fibre service to a 2km area would normally take 6 to 12 months and his company can do it in 4 hours. How exactly the cable is deployed is not specified. Perhaps they simply flush the cable down the toilet.
