Vermont telephone company offering $35-per-month gigabit

The telephone company has been working on building out a fiber network direct to its customers' homes since 2010, when it won a $81 million grant from the USDA as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

($81M / (17,500 homes * Generous 50%)) = $9,257 / customer

That's a lot of $35.00....

Re: Vermont telephone company offering $35-per-month gigabit

and this "So far about 600 Vermont homes have subscribed." Makes it sound even worse.
But if you go back to the original WSJ article
»blogs.wsj.com/digits/2013/04/26/ ··· =WSJBlog
you can read that
1} it really was a huge project
2}small companies ARE willing to upgrade, IF someone gives them the truckloads of cash to pay for it.

If you can't charge the customers getting it, maybe the feds can force it down their throats.
