There's a lot more to it than dropping some conduit and wire on the ground.

I'm aware of that. Given you can't go look up construction crews' wages on deepsurplus.com, though, you'll have to math that yourself. I can add one number, again at consumer pricing. I can rent a trencher for a month of conduit burying for $1500. Again, these are relatively small numbers when you consider what they charge rural users for ANY kind of broadband, and the ROI is anything but long-term. These companies are making tens of millions net income. The fact that anyone at all doesn't have access is ridiculous.
