No one is stopping you from having a dedicated fiber-optic line run from the local teleco directly to your mom's basement. They'd be happy to do it... so long as you are willing to pony up the cash.

Yeah, that's what they SAY. That's not actually what they're willing to do. I called Cox and asked what it would cost for a FTTH if I paid for it. (It was around 12 grand.)

Then, when I actually offered to pay for it and asked them if and when they could do it, they said I had to get 50 more customers in my neighborhood interested, AT TWELVE GRAND A FUCKING PIECE, before they'd actually come and do it.

So no. They won't come and do it if you offer to pay for it.
