Oh no, never seen anybody closed a street for a month especially to lay an
Internet cable. :-)

I have. Several times :-)

First they dig up the street. The start placing the tubes. Then they discover
they can not cross
certain place, because there is a water pipe, or gas, or "something" that
nobody knows what it is.
So they have to wait.

That's just a possible scenario of many.

Or just after they close the hole, somebody finds out that it would be a good
time to put gas
piping, so they open the street up again. Or repair the sewage. Or worse, the
machinery breaks
something from some other company: the water piping breaks, because it is half
a century old. The
water gets with force inside the new telco piping and gets to the hole in the
pavement where the
equipment is and ruins it all, putting the district out of service. Or the
digging machinery breaks
the entire fiber optic loop from the competing company and puts an entire city
out of telephone

Just dream away, it has already happened somewhere. >:-P

They usually either use existing collectors

For that they need permission from the owner of those conduits, who is going to
charge. Perhaps a
lot. Here.

or stretch the cables over air
from one building to another, which is even cheaper.

And forbidden here.

People could do it on their own, till somebody complains and the police
investigates. A business can
not do it, they risk hefty fines.

What you describe that happens in your city is very peculiar, very different
from what happens on
many other places. For you it is the obvious thing to do, it is familiar, but
not for us.
