    But you have an option. If it is more expensive to get grid power connected you can go solar - cost
    was about the same for installation, then nearly free power, just replace a few batteries each year.
    No such alternative with phones. If mobile data was affordable, and nextG coverage was available,
    you would not need to run copper.

    Wrong, you are welcome to have a satellite service instead if you want one.

    > If mobile data was affordable,


    Thats not a phone service.

    > and nextG coverage was available, you would not need to run copper.

    Yes they did. They paid back all monies given to them back to 1901, with a
    commercial rate of interest
