Re: [Signals] Low signal and slow speeds

Sounds like he would have to pay to have Comcast extend their network which can run into the thousands+. He would have to speak with someone with Comcast about the exact cost.

A 700-900ft drop just isn't possible to do and still get a useable signal.

What exactly do you mean by "extend their network"? Do you mean put a pole or tap or something on their property (like beside their house) so that the drop isn't so far away from the tap/pole (whatever you call it, what do you call it?). They live in a rural area where there's a lot of farms, so people have a lot of property and the houses are set back several hundred feet from the road. What is typically done for people in those situations where the drop cable is 700+ ft from the road or tap?
