Are you able to share any numbers about costs per mile and/or subscriber? I'm
sure a lot of people are curious how the co-op was able to run fiber to places
that none of the usual suspects wanted to run coax to. (Of course, it probably
helped that a co-op only has to care about eventually  breaking even or at
least not losing *too* much money, rather than making a profit in the
relatively short term)
