Here is how it works....
When a cable company signs a franchise agreement, they have to adhere to have their cable AVAILABLE at x% of address (decided by the city/cable company). Usually in more rural areas, those numbers are lower, as getting cable to those homes is much more expensive than a more densly populated area. So, if the agreement is at 80%, and there are 1000 homes in your area, the cable company only has to be AVAILABLE (please note this doesnt be subscribed to) these 800 homes.
You can check with your franchise. Did you call and get a quote on construction costs? Also, if you have a neighbor(s) who might be willing to split the costs with you, that may be another route.
