When it comes down to it, the internet is just wood and copper

This telephone poll was at the end of a street I was walking down, and I was struck how fragile the whole thing looked.

 

Depending on the year, those wires could have been carrying telegraph signals, voice, fax, ISDN, ADSL or SDSL. I wonder what they'll carry next?
