Very true!

Well why don't you lease a dedicated line with the speed you require to the large non sticky tubes. Bloomberg does it. Just for giggles I called Cablevision about getting "Lightpath" (FTTP) to my house. No problem pay $2,500 to run the glass 9,000 feet from Verizon's CO and then the monthly charge for as fast as I want to go.

It is not a lack of bandwidth it is you want if for free; sorry there is no free lunch.

$2500 to run fiber 9000 feet? That's a screaming deal, I'd jump on it. Seriously.

Maybe, maybe not. What's the MRC and for how long?

$2500 for a 2 mile fiber run, dedicated to you? WTF are you waiting for? What are the monthly costs once you're hooked up, for, say, 30 megabits symmetric?

The funny thing is Cablevision's Lightpath closest POP is Hackettstown. What they would do is run it into Verizon's CO and I assume lease a line to their backbone.

This is not a residential line it is a big bucks leased line with guaranteed bandwidth 24/7 plus a guaranteed up time of 99.999 or something %. This is not new Verizon has been offering this since they were New Jersey Bell. Just have DEEP pockets.

I can't put a price on this but the least expensive would be a point to point and I don't have another point to connect to. I would have to negotiate with a backbone provider for a peering arraignment. This is not like a turn key FiOS install.
