Some companies in the UK and France already offer fast broadband via
the sewers.

Using sewers in the UK is not the best option in the UK, I remember
hearing on a TV program a few months ago so they were looking at other
methods, like through water pipe ducting.

There is increasing pressure in the UK from various groups to get a UK
fibre network installed to future proof internet in the feat that the
UK is falling behind in the broadband market. This is one of Ofcom's
many responses to the problem.

So don't worry they are not quite running it through they are not
covering it in the sh*t yet
