Can any line workers explain why the electrical infrastructure looks like pic related in most third world countries?

Can any line workers explain why the electrical infrastructure looks like pic related in most third world countries? Yes, obviously it looks way less organized and safe but what is with the sheer number of extra electrical cables? Why don't there seem to be regulations in place that prevent local municipalities from piling on cables upon cables like this?

    They're all privately owned, so every time a new utility connection is needed, they have to add a new cable. No old cables are removed, either, and none of the people doing the work have appropriate training.

    High-trust society. In the US, "diverse" and "urban" populations would destroy that in less than a day. They have to be buried under several feet of concrete.

      Interesting, based, unpopular but likely true.
      There, if someone is seen tampering with other ppls connections, they’d get mobed by machete wielding crowds

    Latin American cultures are more prone to consume the anime Serial Experiments Lain, which is why the youtube uploads of it all have Spanish subtitles, hence they have developed an intricate webbing of power lines to imitate its aesthetic. It's a common anthropological phenomenon in these tropical latitudes, comparable with the infamous Taqueria Goku.

    Those are all telecom wires. No primary or secondary power line.

    Iterative point A to point B. Looks like my downstairs entertainment room. First there was a projector and sound system years ago. So wires were hooked up from the front-left area where the entertainment system controlled the cable and dvd player and console etc. Then the projector gave out and now you could get 60+in TV about as big as the old personal screen and everything went from 1080 to 4K, so you had to run the devices to the screen's HDMIs itself. Shit was already taped down in strips under the floor so the easiest way was running longer cables or getting female-female adapters. Some were video-only while still connected to the sound system. Then the sound system gave out, so some things than may have been optical audio+DVI/HDMI go straight HDMI to the screen which is now connected to a new interface directly off the TV. Add into that ethernet cords where random consoles and now the smart TV are coming from where it originally was by the projector and PC, and it's a fricking spider web in here!
    It'd be easier to start from scratch, but that's just my laziness. Those people need power and information lines into their homes and rewiring that would leave them without electricity or internet for weeks because look at that shit.

    in third world countries, they do not

    Hi, I build powerlines in the US for a living. Those are not powerlines. Amazing we are this far into the thread and no one pointed out those are telecom cables. Even in the US, phone guys are a bunch of gays who do shit work and frick up my pretty poles. I hate having to transfer com, my favorite thing is to just cut it down. When I do transfer it, I generally do a better job than the telecom guys. Often, many of the wires are abandoned.

    Telecom, even in the US, is far less regulated than the power side. Generally, it is the utility company b***hing (fining them money) at the telecoms who are renting pole access for anything to happen.
