David, fiber offers greater reliability in that, with a fiber deployment, the plant is not affected by weather (rain) like legacy copper (xDSL deployment) or line of sight issues (like wireless). It is safe to say that Elevate infrastructure will be as reliable as DMEA power, as it will be running along side our electric infrastructure. If a tree takes out DMEA power, it is also likely to take out Elevate. However, our crews are local and fast to respond to all outages and we will take our Elevate service just as seriously.
