No, they won't provision over it, and will only hand off to you on fiber if you pay the build from their drop point to yours and sign up for a corp based service plan, aka "kilobucks"
When you're right, you're right... I was told by Charter it would cost $15k for a new node because they don't have a node in that neighborhood. This, despite the fact that I can see their cable line hanging on the pole, and that the person living on the main road beside our driveway has cable.
I also asked about hanging a cabinet with cable modem and fiber converter and treating that as the demarc. Nope. It has to be installed at an "actual address".
Of course, they have no problems whatsoever doing it, as long as I'm willing to pay over 2x the price it would cost to trench it myself.
I am unsure if there are valid legal reasons for their position or not.
I have written to AT&T hoping they have a more enlightened mindset. Sit and ponder the bleakness of the previous sentence for a moment.
Thanks for the help anyway.
