Oh-No - I'm talking about brand new subdivisions as well. I've seen lots of them where the MSO decided it wasn't worth it for them to spend the $$$ needed and get 20-40% penetration over 3-5 years. I've even seen them battle with cities and counties in court over franchise agreements that they weren't fulfilling as a result of these types of decisions. At the end of the day, these are largely un-regulated entities who straddle the line between the private sector and utilities - they have a lot of autonomy and discretion in regards to what they will or won't expend their limited funding to build. Again, the OP can state their case and protest (and I wish them well in that endeavor). I just doubt if they will get much traction if they don't have some relatives or close friends in high ranking political offices.
