Re: Possibility of getting cable?

I figured that would be a long shot I could possibly put up 5000 for the build I kinda doubt that would help much I have centurylink and they just finished running fiber to us I like cable better though.i have called Comcast 4 times and each time they say we will send someone to survey and get back to you I have never got a answer I do want to know what it will take to get cable but Comcast never does a survey I think.

If you have fiber from the telco, you won't need cable, even Uverse or similar "not quite FTTH" is a big step up from dialup or satellite choices.

Oh yeah it's a whole lot better than satellite,DSL was made available in Jan of this year and they just ran fiber a few months ago. Cable is just better for uploads

I have tried to find the franchise authority but I have had no luck maybe Virginia does not have one does anyone know?

The State Corp Commission regulates some stuff but the locals are the regulating authority in VA. Independent cities or counties etc.

most likely cause construction knows there is no way in hell they are building it....it would be in the 10+ thousand range if even at all possible due to amp casacde.
