Hi Ed - Your work in B'ham is exemplary. Where we are building Skagit Commons, the city of Anacortes is installing municipal fiber. I believe their pricing would charge each unit the same as a single family house. It's less than commercial cable, but nothing like $6 a unit. What type of contract do you have with your cable company?
