Pole to Pole Network is a geo-specific network where users will be able to define their preferences and functionality from a list of comprehensive features and services to create a dynamic real-world environment. This is ‘the information highway redefined’. Pole to Pole will hit the net as a geo-specific network of virtual communities (VC’s) linking steel utility poles together per, region, city, and neighborhood.
Steel poles have become increasingly more popular in utility markets for a variety of reasons. Many industry participants agree that fewer steel poles are required per kilometre than are wood poles. Further, the life cycle of steel poles is estimated at three times that of wood poles. Despite the utility pole market historically being almost exclusively a wood pole market, in recent years there has been emergence of alternate materials, particularly steel.
