The telephone company finally switched the twisted pair wires coming to the homestead with something faster.
We now have fiber with enough bandwidth to stream HD movies. Hooray, hooray!
As you can see a black wire comes off the telephone pole and into this mysterious box. A white cable comes out. Oooh, fancy technology.
I am hoping that this change from using electrons to photons will make my writing come off as enlightened and a bit less shocking.
