Why is Internet difficult to get in Communities in Evansville, IN and other areas?

Why is Internet so difficult to get in Rural Communities around Evansville or other similar areas?
It cost an Internet Company anywhere from $2500-$15,000 a mile to run Internet lines in rural communities. In many rural communities houses can be 1/2 a mile or more away. It's not cost effective for them to run equipment this far without numerous potential clients. Some folks in Evansville and other rural communities have a driveway which is more than 1/2 mile long. Very few people can afford to spend $2500-$15,000 to run Internet to their home.
As a result, Sitco offers a Point to Point Internet System for Evansville and surrounding communities. The slight disadvantage over a buried line or a line that runs pole to pole is that trees, land elevation and other factors can impact coverage. Homes in the woods, on the back side of a hill, etc. often have too many factors which influence coverage.
