really neat electrical wiring - not!

    Look at the utility pole in the right side of the picture. Click on the
    picture to get the full view and zoom in on it. Something makes me think
    that not all of this was wired up by the utility.

    | You picture(s) are taking much too long to download.

    They are at the domain referenced. I didn't have any trouble downloading them.

    | BUT you have to understand that by law utilities have to share "pole space"
    | with each other.

    Of course. And assuming the same law exists in Myanmar, that would still mean
    only electric, telephone, and cable TV utilities would be allowed to do that.
    The average citizne would not be allowed (to the extent they bother to enforce
    this) to wire up their own electricity.

    | So on one pole you might have:
    | 1) one or two high voltage (sometimes with different voltages) feeders.
    | 2) low voltage (120/240) stuff
    | 3) Telephone Cable
    | 4) Cable Television Cable
    | 5) Fibre Optic Cable
    | All but #1 will have customer "service drops." Because of the diversity
    | of trade skills required, you might have 4 or 5 different sets of crews
    | installing and serving this stuff.

    The really bad wiring on that pole could be either utility piracy, or poor
    quality on the part of the utility workers. Regardless of the latter, I do
    suspect there is a lot of the former in that location of the world.
