"I'm so tired of your snarky half wise/idiot dipshits that enter every discussion, make some stupid comment that you think is clever, and then when challenged you run away thinking you accomplished something."
You clearly spend a lot of time looking in a mirror. Look, if you want to believe that there's a huge amount of empty space running under Manhattan streets, just waiting to be wired with fiber, be my guest. You're also welcome to believe that the main problem is dealing with the CHUDs down there. Both beliefs are equally true.
If you want to think that the primary cost of network deployment is the license, not the fiber (which is cheap) or the labor (which is NOT), let me pose one question to you then: Google has deployed minimal amounts of fiber, in markets where construction and deployment is much cheaper than in NYC, and where they have all the licenses. Are they just idiots, who don't have your understanding of network and construction economics?
Finally, one more question for you: do you understand the difference between the license needed to run fiber and the franchise agreement needed to offer TV service on the fiber you've run? Because it doesn't sound like you understand that there's a difference, with one being much more complicated to get than the other.
