Cost. In an existing building you have to run cables in conduits that
barely have room for phone cables or run new conduits on the outside of
the buildings. Laying new cables around town is also expensive.

It depends on what permissions you have. No space inside? Put it up the front
outside wall, all the
way up. One drop per level, just to the living room window. You just need a
chap hanging down in
ropes from the top, making holes in the wall, and another one helping. Two
people. You just need
permission from the owners.

No kidding, that's how they do it here (Spain).

Newer buildings have to have conduits in place from the start for several
providers, by law. Very
easy to wire up.

The street is way more expensive, you have to put pipes under the pavement, and
cover it with
concrete. Get permission from the authorities, put the street out of service
for a week or a month.
Costs in the hundred thousands euros per kilometer.
