Abstract : Southern Bell's use of buried PIC cable and underground wire for rural distribution plant is discussed. Analyses indicate that 'inplant' cost of buried PIC cable is from 15% to 30% less than that of equivalent aerial plant, exclusive of pole line costs. Moreover, plowing was found feasible in much more difficult terrain than was originally thought possible, and the trouble incidence is very low.
