I saw that headline from the BBC (that was the RSS headline), and that a new fiber optic network would be created in New York. My first thought was, "I thought I heard that the incumbent telecoms wouldn't make that possible in New York for the foreseeable future". Then, "Maybe I was wrong?"
Then I realized that I had mis-read the one-sentence summary, and that it was York, England, not New York, New York. And suddenly it all made sense again. *sigh*
