This is a hypothetical question. I currently live overseas but will be returning to the US as some point in the next year. I have the opportunity to move any where I want, but must have internet. I work remotely and the faster the internet the better. I would like to move to a rural setting, which obviously isn't conducive to having fast internet.
So, I have a couple questions. Do any of the main ISPs (ATT, Verizon, etc.) allow customers to pay to run fiber? Does anyone have experience actually paying an ISP to bring service to them?
Any thoughts on cost? I've always thought it would be interesting for ISPs to allow me to pay, say, $10k to run a fiber line to my house, then pay me back over time if they were able to sell service to other's off it.
Something kind of like what this story covers:»arstechnica.com/features/2008/07 ··· d-fiber/
but instead I would be the one paying for the lines to a community and as they sell access to other homeowners, I get paid back.
I can stomach a couple grand to run a line and a couple hundred dollars a month for service, so don't rule out costs being to high.
Thanks, and I apologize if this has been covered. I tried searching, but it's kind of a generic search.
