If you don't oppose government, you're not an anarchist, end of story.

Sine you're talking semantics you also need to define "government". All anarchists may be required to oppose your definition of government, but it isn't the only one. For example, my Lions Club has a government (president, vice president, council, etc.) but I don't think you'd be required to oppose it as an anarchist.

So if they are serviced by a public road at a huge loss to the state

They're not serviced by a public road. You might have a public road (really, a dirt track with the odd and rare sign) and then 20 house each 100 miles away from that road in different directions. So you'd need to string a couple thousand miles of fiber along the "public road", and then another couple thousand miles just to get those 20 houses hooked up. Multiply that a thousand times more and there you go.

Imagine wiring up a thousand small towns where each town is so spread out you need a thousand miles of fiber just to hook them up to the main line, which itself is tens of thousands of miles long. Then you can start to see the scale.
