Too cheap to install a DSLAM on this side of the tracks, really.  The
only issue with fiber is the need for further hardware at the transition to
copper.  One DSLAM could service all of west davis with high-speed DSL...
same with Mace Ranch in East Davis.

Same basic reason there's no cable modem service in Davis. (all of the cable
infrastructure in Davis was replaced/rebuilt 3-5 years ago, and since TCI
hasn't recouped those costs, they're not about to install a 'broadband'
cable network)
