Utilities also have become big users of fiber. Practically every pipeline or electrical line has fiber running parallel to it or even inside the wires in the case of high voltage electrical distribution lines.

Fiber provides communications over the routes and sometimes even includes sensors that keep track of the performance and problems. The electrical utilities are developing “smart grids” to make their power distribution more efficient and these networks depend on fiber for connections.
