I thought this was interesting.

Source: http://blogs.zdnet.com/BTL/?p=16170&tag=nl.e539 and all sorts of other places.

There were four fiber cuts in different areas that left people in Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and San Benito counties (supposedly 50k customers) without landline and cell phones (including 911 service), Internet service, and some TV. One cable contained 360 fibers, the other three 48 each. It even affected some datacenters, ZDNet and BDNET had problems. AT&T said that heavy-duty equipment was used to lift man-hole covers and cut the lines and have a $250,000 reward for information about the incident. While the man-holes are filled with cables and pipes for various services the only lines cut were AT&T, at least some were leased to Verizon. It looks so far like whoever did this knew what they were doing.

Oh this... it was in the news in Saturday. I'm so glad I didn't get affected by this because I live only 100 miles away from that area. And whoever did this deserves the death penalty.
