by coolgeek (#36754770) Attached to: The Cost Of Broadband In Every Rural Home

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.

There are no data that cannot be plotted on a straight line if the axis are chosen correctly.
