So much for "You don't need fiber."

According to CED Cox is launching its first residential Fiber To The Home project in Mission Viejo California. So much for Cox's refrain during the fiber fight that nobody needed fiber; that having fiber in Lafayette was like having a luxury car without having a decent garage within which to put it.

On the other hand perhaps Cox is not so hypocritical about this as it might at first glance appear. After all Mission Viejo is a large, upscale planned community — Lafayette residents will think "River Ranch" — that will certainly be a rich source of income for years to come. The lowest priced town homes start at 400,000 dollars.

My guess is that Cox thinks that Mission Viejo does have decent garages, and therefore deserves fiber.

That's just not the way we think down here.
