I had a fiber connection installed to a private school. We bought the connection from a local non-profit that was built for providing fast, affordable Internet connections to schools, libraries, and non profits. The non-profit ISP had a fiber corridor running right down the street at the front of the property that took about two years for them to clear all the red tape for installation. The proverbial "last mile" was about 150 yards of driveway between the street to the school. There were existing utility poles running down the drive, owned by the local power company. With only power, one telephone cable, and one CATV cable on those poles and no other customers were served using those cables, there was no justifiable reason for the fiber not to simply be run on those poles. The power company either denied access or asked a ridiculous attachment fee. The ISP had a boring company come in to get the fiber from the street to our front door.
