    Good decision but it should have been made from the start.

    It doesn't really matter how good the distribution system is things can be damaged by a jack-hammer, etc.

    Apart from the main city centres the system is still third world overhead cables like in Uruguay and large parts of the States on which (unfortunately) it was modelled.
