The telcos will never, ever run new lines to people like you. The cost per subscriber would be so high that they could never recover their investment, ever (factoring in time-value of money).
Sorry, but that's BS. They can build it out and it will cost a lot, but it's an investment, not a loss. And for telcos not even all that large.
Consider my own situation. I live roughly 9 miles from the exchange, and from what I understand it'd take a grand total of 1 regenerator to reach me. But that's not even necessary, because I also live roughly 1.9 miles from an equipment site that has power, a cinderblock "shed" with halon fire suppression systems and air conditioning, and perhaps 4-5 outdoor metal boxes with various equipment inside of them -- all connected to that exchange I just mentioned via fiber, fiber that has been in the ground for half a decade already.
If they put a DSLAM out there and flip a switch, not only do the people out here get DSL, they get pretty decent DSL at that. So what's that cost, $100k? $150k today?
You can't tell me with a straight face that they can't afford that investment. I've got a dial tone, and I've got electricity. Those lines weren't paid for with magic beans, they were paid out of debt and have long since been recouped.
Either these shitty companies need to start making investments -- for their own damn good -- or the government needs to force them to do it. Hell, we're bailing out the insurance companies, let's bail out the telcos too while we're at it. At least it'll be a one-time thing.
