Neighborhoods change and installing new fiber is expensive. I would give
the service provider the benefit of the doubt in this circumstance.

It's not fine where it's likely to be burned or shot at or otherwise
disrupted. Saying, "Oh but we make it redundant" (which these folks
apparently didn't) doesn't handle the "But you made it low-reliability
in the first place".
You don't do that with infrastructure. You just don't. If you do,
you don't get it and should be in another business.
