What is Connection Cost? Where does it show up in plan financials?
Connection Cost (part of ROIC settings) is meant to represent total success-based capex of newly-subscribing location. Typically, these costs include drop cable, CPE, truck roll/install, etc.
Connection costs are incurred when a location converts into a customer (i.e. in later years). Arrow keeps track of new subscribers in each time period and reports their counts and corresponding connect costs in “Financial Output” reports.
