Re: So for semi-real internet in rual areas

FTTP is cool, however you probably already know how much that sort of thing costs. How do you think the revenue, monthly, picture would look fot FTTP in the area you would want to deploy it, and how would that compare to the capex/opex of such a network?

Investors are investing for a rate of return of some sort, not just charity

To be clear, I have no intention of shooting such things down. It's just a question of whether you can get enough people signed up for enough money to make things work...particularly important if you don't want to do a traditional triple play.

Actually, if I could get everything set to my goal of what I'd want to create, I'm pretty certain a lot of people would want to sign up, and not just for the ISP part of the service, but the part that replaces TV/Radio-Music/Movies as well, and even more (I have more ideas I'm just not willing to let them go in detail so that someone doesn't end up stealing them lol) but what I'm talking about creating would almost compete with just about everything on the internet today, in a new way that's easy for people to use, and convenient, as well as possibly even adding features people haven't even thought about yet.

I have a few things coming up that may actually provide me with a family member who has the money to backup what I'm trying to do here soon, so we'll just have to see where that goes, if so I'll probably be posting on here for beta testers and etc, but it's just going to take more time to talk to them about it and keep providing ideas.

Right keep on dreaming. The fact is that when you get into content, you're not going to get the deals you want, and a small ISP can't get into content in any meaningful way anyways. And, unfortunately, fiber way out there isn't likely to make money. The exception is an area that's out there but not super far out there that is so underserved now that you'd get a large market share, unlike FIOS, which was put in relatively rich suburban areas that were already well served by cable, and full of dumb rich people who apparently don't realize that FIOS is so utterly superior in every way to cable.

You seem to think I would be getting into content like I'd be redistributing what's being currently made by the current producers, song writers, directors, screen play writers, etc, and that's not at all what I had in mind, but thanks for trying to kill my dream you didn't kill

Then you're not going to have the content. You could be successful at small scale, but it won't replace traditional media, and not if you tie it to some sort of physical distribution medium.
