Ya that’s just it, on my road after me there are about 7 people in the next mile, and then it is another town with even less people per mile on the road.I got stuck painting the house this weekend.
15 poles! Wow thats about 4 line extenders (at $400 a pop) and about 2000' of coax at $45 per 4'. Do the math! Oh my!
When we first moved here we called the cable company and they said cable was here, but it wasn’t. hence the reason for the sat. TV.
They wanted like $7,000 to run cable to just us, and with the way the cable service is here in Maine. Out anytime we have a storm, it really isn’t worth it.
So I won’t be getting high speed anytime soon unless it’s Sat. and at the price of that, on fixed income I don’t think we will be getting that either.
So I guess we’re stuck with dial up for a while.
Funny thing is, we have over 900’ of road frontage, and the house is at the far end from the cable. Wonder if they would run it to the beginning of our property and let me run the rest?
Would cut the install fee in half. I could run it the rest of the way on my property and put in my own posts.
Screw it I never really was on here all that much until after my stroke. Dec. 04.
Then I was stuck in the house and figured if I couldn’t work I could help some people out with my knowledge on a few forums.
Which I did, and have met some good people, and a few not so good, but enjoy a good debate now and then.
But now I have to go do the y pipe and cat on the Burb, luckily my buddy in the next town has a lift and torches. So I’m headed over there in an hour to do that.
Wish me luck, that we don’t brake any manifold studs. I got all 6 just in case.
