Default Bare Neutral Lateral Better?

We were working on an old service lateral from 1959. It was all underground in rigid. Copper and the grounded conductor was that bare braided stuff. I was told by someone that this is a better design as water is eventually going to get into conduits and this would clear a fault better. Truth or Fiction?
