I live out in corn country Ohio. Internet options around here are WiFi and Cable/DSL, if you're lucky. None of the options are that great, good enough for basic Internet but nothing to try and run a home-office from.
I recently received a quote for a 10 Meg fiber line with a monthly cost around $800 with a 3 year contract, no setup. This would be a business line type of deal, and the install location is approx. 3/4m to the road where their fiber line runs, who knows how far to the nearest connection point.
Is this a decent deal? It seems like it when I've read that the install costs can range well into the tens of thousands of dollars with case studies like this (»bbpmag.com/2011mags/marchapril11···iber.pdf
). But other than the great help I've received so far from the fiber guys, I really have no way to compare. Honestly, I can get get more information on how to build a F-16 from ebay parts than information on Fiber to the [whatever] works using my Google-Fu.
We're probably gonna pull the trigger on this, but some 3rd party perspective would be nice.
