Re: Possibility of getting cable?
Here is the answer:
Yes, its possible, but there will be construction costs directly to you. Depending on the plant extension needed, itll be 5-10k. If its worth it to you, then go ahead and do it. Itll certainly be better than any internet you can get now, and to an extent, increase the value of the home.
You can ask your neighbors to chip in, and maybe come to an agreement. Generally though, the franchise agreements are based upon a percentage of homes passed, so as long as CC is servicing new subdivisions, they will keep above par to meet their end of the agreement though.
I just sent a email to corporate customer service about a survey I just want to hear from Comcast what they are willing to do and the exact price of the build. With centurylink bringing bonded DSL that would be more of a competition for Comcast to reach more people possibly
Let us know how that turns out, it would be interesting to see a bid, if they will even provide one.
But gar187er may be right, it may be so far from any practical design, that some engineer in the local constuction office can say "No Way!" just looking at the plant maps, without ever leaving his desk.
They should still send you a "Sorry, at this time.." type letter.
The guy from Comcast I am talking to said he is contacting a technical department to see what they may be able to offer me.
gar187erI do this for a living
you need to talk to construction if anybody...
I'm better than you!
So guys I got a email today and the guy is talking to construction to see if they can extend service to my home he said he should know more next week.
