It would be cheaper to call your local cable company and pay them to extend fiber from the nearest splice point and then sign up for a business fiber Ethernet service

How much would that be as an estimate?

depending on where you live, what the permitting requirements are for the construction, and whether the work is areal or underground you can figure around $70-150K per mile.

most cable systems I have visited around the US have splice points that are generally within thousand feet or so of a customer.

Ouch. No way I can afford that. I am not rich. My neighborhood does have Time Warner Cable though. :P

LOL. Please stop making me laugh.
