Cost to Lay Cable for Caribou Residents

February 3, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Of the 320 buildings not serviced by Time Warner cable how much would each resident/owner of the buildings have to pay to get cable?  Assuming each building is owned by separate resident and assuming each resident approached Time Warner individually (not as a collective group)  they would be expected to pay an average of $2,590.  $828,600 / 320 = $2,589.375.  However, some of the residents are within a half a mile of where the cable terminates and others are several miles.  Between $1,000 to $60,000 per installation.  Below is a graph chart that shows how many residents would be expected to pay based on cost.

Based on a median income of $36,779 as of 2009 for Caribou residents I belive the cost is out of most people’s reach, even if Time warner contributes $1,000 per installation as they did on the estimate they gave me.
