  3. Indeed.

    Money has always been able to get you what you want.

    When I bought this house at a very attractive price, it had an 11KV
    cable running across the garden utterly precluding any change to the
    house structure.

    A quick call to the electricity company revealed they were perfectly
    happy to underground it - if I was totally prepared to pay for it. Or
    most of it.

    The total bill was around £30k. Of which I paid around £20k.

    Of course that allowed me to build a house on the plot worth ten times
    as much as the one I had in fact bought..

    People are not prepared to pay for the cost of delivering high speed
    internet - its really that simple.

    I could get symmetric 100Mbps here easily if I was prepared to pay
    around £20k installations and £10k annually.

    I could even sell it on to my neighbour who would expect to pay no more
    than a tenner a month for it.

    Which explains why I haven't done it...


    (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to
    lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the
    members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are
    rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a
    diminishing number of producers.

    To my mind it isn't worth paying for anyway !
