Submission + - Running fiber to my home 3

pseudorand writes: Century Link only offers 1.5 MB to my home. Comcast has faster but reportedly unreliable service and wants to charge me hundreds to run copper to my home. Wireless broadband provides can't service my home without cutting down lots of trees. But in China, everyone's getting fiber (http://yro.slashdot.org/story/13/01/11/1755218/all-new-homes-
in-china-must-have-fiber-optic-internet-connections). And I'm pretty sure the telco's have installed fiber to plenty of rural farmhouses to get their universal service funds, yet have no plans of offering my any serice. WTF capitalism!?!

I want fiber to my home, and I'm willing to pay to have it installed (possibly a significant sum). Can this be done? Are there telcos or other providers that will quote you a price for such a thing?
