Any Experience with Fiber Optic

Anyone here have any experience with retro fitting a land lease community with fiber optic so as to create an additional income stream from ground telephone system, security systems, cable TV, and internet access?

Here are some things I would like to know:

  • Is it cost feasible?
  • What kind of start up costs?
  • How much per pad?
  • What is the minimum number of pads for consideration?
  • Any problems with existing providers?
  • Any problems with regulators?
  • Who are the reputable suppliers?
  • Are there reliable and expert consultancies on this?

I did this years ago when developing brand new communities, but things have probably changed and now I’m considering doing it in an existing community, so everything is somewhat different. I would be grateful for any serious feedback from anyone who has attempted to, or has accomplished this.

If somebody is interested, I responded to this thread on biggerpockets forum. If you have any question, you can leave them here and I will be glad to help.
