The six mile radius is phenomenal. After all it is the last mile that is 
the problem especially in a city like New York. They have been trying to 
use the sewers and old underground pipes to deliver fiber. With gas 
lines you have a connection ready made for virtually every household. 
Fiber is no problem for a six mile hybrid system.
