Nonononono, bad plan. I want a fiber from my home to my storefront on
main street, but I'm a consumer not a retailer so I can't buy just
one? Or hey, so sorry but the cable MuniFiber ran to your home is
under contract to XYZ corp. They have to release it before we at ABC
corp can provide you service.
