Re: People willing to pay more for home with broadband

Then again, I earn a living online, so it isn't a just a luxury.

Not a luxury, but an amenity.
For you it's a necessity, for some a large yard, big garage wine cellar or some other recreational benefit makes it the right house, for you broadband frees up time/cash/choices to be recreational that makes it work, just like easy freeway access or mass transit sells other workers on a given location and home.

So now that widespread demand is there, builders and remodelers and eventually city planners will see broadband as, as much of a requirement as any other amenity.

Sometimes, if just a cable provider is around but hasn't wired house because its a new isolated location, it can be sometimes cheaper just to pay for drop/installation than another house. Whats the average like $2000 (depends on distance)? Now how much the house in the same area that is wired to broadband costs more?

I'm half a mile (maybe less) outside coverage the cable co wants at least $10000, aerial not buried.

DSL isn't available either, so I use 3G via the phone's hotspot now.
