Great idea for areas with NO vehicular traffic and very cost effective
 about 26$ per 100 foot roll.

Some drawbacks:

it is hard to "lay it in" flat and straight, rigid PVC or thin walled
drain pipe is easier
The straighter the pull the easier.....

the internal ridges can make pulling a cable through more difficult,
where a smooth walled tube pulls easier, best to pull a cable from the
middle of the end instead of the side where most knots are tied....
