*Ahem* 

I've talked to Chorus and it's actually 150K. 


Is this an option for you? 


Hell no. The people here hate the speed as much as me but I doubt they would pay to fund a new cabinet. As much as I wish everyone here would chip in.


Maybe you should go and knock their doors. See, how many of them are willing to pay.


Yeah I could. But after my exams.

I suspect the small business owners wouldn't definitly mind. Did some basic maths and if 400 households pay 375 each then we could get somewhere. But again I don't know. It depends on how many people would if I go knocking.



Thank you so much for taking me seriously unlike others. I appreciate it.


400 households? you think you would get that much coverage of people keen?

In this reply you mentioned that raising 200k should be possible

Yeah and maybe have them drop it off at my house, then we can see how much demand+ how much people are willing to pay.
