I don't care if the numbers are real or not. It costs between $1,000,000-$9,000,000 per lane mile of highway out to those rural homes. If we're talking 2-4 homes/mile, the road costs many more times than the cost of the homes too. And $350K to give them broadband is pretty cheap by comparison. Broadband deployment should be viewed as a similar infrastructure to homes, power lines, etc.

This isn't about greed, it's about your narcissistic personality disorder.

You believe you are indispensable, and believe you should be rewarded without having taken any risks. It's too late dude. Now that the company has a "significant revenue already", that ship has sailed.
