Not sure where the idea came that we don't have these poles in the US or Canada.
They are everywhere. Before the advent of the telephone, all poles and lines would have been telegraph. Once the telephone became mainstream the telegraph lines would have been replaced with telephone lines, most likely the same lines in fact, and would have shared them with the power lines anyway.
Not sure if we had the insulators like we see in the kit, or the pole design as they are mostly European, but we surely had something similar, and still do have many similar looking poles still existing today.
