The FCC will invest $4.5 Billion in rural 4G LTE broadband expansion to rate of return carriers via alternative Connect America model (A-CAM).

FIBER:

Can Easier Make-Ready Change the Business Case for FTTH? “Make ready” costs (the cost of readying an aerial facilities pole for a new set of communication cables) might represent $4,000 to $35,000 per mile of cost for a new distribution network. That represents about a low of two percent and perhaps a high of eight percent of total distribution network costs.”
