Dark Fiber/Dry Lines. Building your own network.
I've heard of people buying dark fiber or dry copper line to build a network. I was wondering if anyone here had any experience or any information on it.
I have a business out of the range of any highspeed internet, (except sat) and I would like to set up a network and hook it up to the internet. I would think the easyest way would to buy a dry line for a secuity system and turn it into a dsl line through a residential connection. But dark fiber is a option. Also I need a low latency connection so least amount of hops while surfing.
So what do you know about buying a dry line/dark fiber and setting it up to a isp?
Also, If the telco offers dsl, wouldn't a 3rd party like verizon be able to lease that line ? Also, would switching the dsl provider change how many hops you would have or latency?
The line I will be running will be roughly 6-8miles. The longest network i've done has been 1000ft so this is really new to me.
