    Was looking for more information about this topic (like how much trouble the woman got into) when I stumbled across an article that I realized read a lot like this video. In fact, some of the paragraphs are almost word for word. I'm not sure how I can make Sam aware of this potential plagiarism and it seems he's not too active on Twitter so I'm posting this here. Here's the link to the article:

    Copper cabling theft in the last years is sadly becoming "a thing" here in Rio de Janeiro, and I don't mean scavenging old stuff on the countryside but some people actually cutting away good chunks of perfectly normal/active/working cables from main bridges and tunnels (somewhat easier and more discrete than climbing up electrical poles) to be sold as as scrap. Whole neighborhoods end up regularly without telephone/cable tv and even mains power for days because of said practices... crazy times.

    Tbps stands for terabits per second and not terabytes per second. That designation would be TBps. Data capacity and transfer speed notation is a bit of a nightmare. Terabits (Tb), Terabytes (TB), Tibabits (Tib), Tibabytes (TiB). All closely related but completely different from one another. The worst part is that storage manufacturers and internet service providers use this messy notation to intentionally make everything as confusing as possible in order to make it look like you will be getting more than you actually do get.
