That is 99% of it, local government/officials allowing or giving access where needed. Smaller areas and even some larger pockets the cost is not worth it because of government. Regulatory/political issues and the barriers (as you mention right of way) of the government in the area are always the problem, get rid of those and amazon, google loads of others would trick them out fully.in my city, its determined by public right-of-way licenses. comcast has a grip on the pay tv right-of-way license and centurylink has the telephone right-of-way license and those are the only two internet providers in town. i'm sure both comcast and centurylink pay kickbacks and bribes to city officials tp keep other competitors like verizon fios or att u-verse from getting a right-of-way license. If you want to provide pay tv or internet, you would have to do it wirelessly or thru satellite so public right-of-ways arent needed.
