The demand for broadband Internet access among businesses and individuals is driving a secondary market for installation of fiber optic cable in urban areas, providing additional work for directional boring contractors. As long-haul and local loop networks are completed, band width becomes available for Fiber-to-the-X (business, home) providers to fill a market clamoring for access to the information superhighway. Even wireless providers must have fiber connections to points-of-presence (POPS) for their towers. Project Bank has recently launched an intensive effort to identify Broadband Providers and develop contacts for prequalification documents and project information.
