For an interesting set of cost comparisons....

In most locations every home has electrical service.  What's the
cost per household?

Most houses have a statem maintained road in front of them, what
is the cost per household?

Many (although a lower number) of "city" water and sewer, what is
the cost per household?

For a number of reasons I would expect Broadband to be cheaper than any
of those, per household; but should definately not exceed any of them in
