Re: BH is correct

said by cooldude9919:

Most cable MSO’s sell fiber based services to businesses since they already have fiber in the market due to the coax/fiber nature of their business, but there isnt really a set rate. Each pricing is based on construction charges, speed, and length of contract. We have fiber services from the following cable companies;

Charter
Time Warner Cable
Brigthouse Networks
Comcast
Mediacom
Cox

Businesses, at least in major metro areas, have been able to negotiate deals to bring fiber to a building for at least the last 20 yrs. First from telcos and then from cable companies as well. But there is no price chart. All these deals are negotiated contracts with SLAs and penalties for non-compliance.

Other than Verizon Fios, some municipal systems, and some greenfield developments, FTTH with standardized price sheets is still a long way from being available. And as long as HFC systems can potentially deliver 100 Mbps to a residence at a cheaper cost than FTTH, then FTTH will rollout slowly.
