Re: Site Survey...

I don't see what "reasonable" has to do with it. If you don't like it,
and you have a choice, vote with your pocketbook by taking your business
If you don't have a choice, and your carrier knows it, then you have
little recourse except where it might affect business elsewhere.
I would use whatever stick or carrot I could, but reasonableness only
rarely enters into carrier business ethics.

Is it unreasonable to ask a carrier to perform a site survey, before
quoting out an install? I am looking to pull some fiber into a building
that is off net, and I cannot get my potential carrier to perform a site
My reason for concern is that the NRC / install is 18k, and they have
already conceded that the fiber is less than 40ft from my building, and
that the install should be relativity easy (conduit / everything already
in place). I am being quoted worse case scenario, and should the install
not go as much as 18k, I still need to fork out 18k. I feel like I have
a rep who is being greedy, and that I am subsidizing their business
model for future tenants.
