I don't think that's true, you can't really heavily guard every stretch of cable since it spans such a long distance. There will always be weak spots.

This is common in the Netherlands too nowadays and other countries too I am sure. Because copper has gone up in price considerably. In the Netherlands especially copper lines along railroad tracks are removed, disabling alert systems with obvious dangerous results.
