Looks like I will have to resort to this.
Despite being a TWC shareholder, they are demanding $150K to run a cable to my home. Might as will break out the shovel and dig my own trench... probably much cheaper than their option.

You clearly don't own enough shares.

How far of a run do they have to do? I was quoted 15K for 4.3 miles.....
I wanted to buy a piece of land to build a house on. Comcast in Hooksett NH wanted $12,000 to extend service about 1,800 feet down the road (Edgewater Dr) passing about 6 other unserved houses. I always thought part of having a monopoly in the community meant they had to serve the whole community.
Bunch of thieves! Needless to say, that property is still for sale...
Doubtful that you'd have 12000 in services over a liftetime from them. I wonder though it you could split the cost with the other 6 houses.

I was told about $300,000 for 1.5 miles. No way your quote is correct.

Wireless link (pair of 11g or 11n and yagi's) or buy a spool of fiber and do it yourself.
It's not that expensive for a spool of fiber.

said by AnonMe :How much is the land and house going to cost you? You are making a decision based on pennies. Between negotiating the prices with the seller, and getting the other homes to share in the cost, it is not a big deal. The cost could be capitalized in the cost of the house - how much would that add to your mortgage payment?

NOTHING justifies terrorism. We don't negotiate with terrorists. Those that support terrorists are terrorists.
