If someone wants to list out everything they want included, I can give you actual numbers for a "cost per customer" for those items. We don't normally compute that, but rather take a much more detailed view or a much more general view, depending on what we want to know.

You need more customers!

That should lower your cost per customer.

My partner has done some quick analysis at COST PER CUSTOMER. This does not include CPE hardware or one-time purchases...just monthly expenses that must be covered by revenue from our customers. Items like fuel, insurance, tower
leases, bandwidth, billing & administration, support costs, cell phones,
etc.  He came up with about $37 COST per subscriber.

I'm not really interested in how much we charge at this point...just coming
up with a valid calculation of COST.

Does $37 per subscriber seem right? I think it's high (I've only given it
about 15 minutes worth of thought).

This is something, of course, that everyone should be looking at, so I think
some discussion would be helpful.
