I wanted to buy a piece of land to build a house on. Comcast in Hooksett NH wanted $12,000 to extend service about 1,800 feet down the road (Edgewater Dr) passing about 6 other unserved houses. I always thought part of having a monopoly in the community meant they had to serve the whole community.
Bunch of thieves! Needless to say, that property is still for sale...

How much is the land and house going to cost you? You are making a decision based on pennies. Between negotiating the prices with the seller, and getting the other homes to share in the cost, it is not a big deal. The cost could be capitalized in the cost of the house - how much would that add to your mortgage payment? -- NOTHING justifies terrorism. We don't negotiate with terrorists. Those that support terrorists are terrorists.
