This is  true for many utilities.  We've been putting this type od fiber

I'm told that utilities are routinely pulling in topside  protective
ground wires which have a fiber core.  Someone in that  industry might
comment.  If true, they have the long-haul  infrastructure...or will...
to make something like this  play.

Agreed, and even longer for some utilities. I recall starting  this in about 
1986-87, nine yrs before I retired from Detroit Edison Co. 13.2kv  
Y-distribution and 40kv subtransmission (then) mostly. There was idle talk 
about  it on 
120kv, 230kv transmission but it sure wasnt done when I was there.
