have network cabling run to each unit, however, I haven't been able to
verify that yet.

expensive because of the need to purchase routers or cable modems for each

150 subscribers per building. In other words, they don't scale well.

ethernet switch on each floor. Basically, we would need someone local to
the area that could physically setup and install the network.
