That is one advantage of fibre-optic. The value is in what isn't there.

It was the fibre that was cut.

There are an increasing number of incidents of theft of precious metals and gas. Higher commodity costs, such as for gas or certain types of metal, leads to greater value and greater incidents of thievery as selling the ill-gotten goods brings more money. Metal thieves are hard to catch, unless they're caught in the act. Precious metal and gasoline theft increasing nationwide. Thievery of metals is especially disturbing, though it is hard to do much about without catching the thief in the act. Hope this problem be solved soon. Or else, what will happen next could be worse.

It has been increasing in the UK for the past few years thanks to the commodity market and demand from Asia but linking to a US article is a bit of a waste.
