Enter the connection distance (ft) and the distance rate ($/ft) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Connection Cost. 

Connection Cost Formula



  • CON is the Connection Cost ($)
  • CD is the connection distance (ft)
  • DR is the distance rate ($/ft)

To calculate the Connection Cost, multiply the connection distance by the distance rate.

How to Calculate Connection Cost?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Connection Cost.

  1. First, determine the connection distance (ft). 
  2. Next, determine the distance rate ($/ft). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = CON = CD * DR.
  4. Finally, calculate the Connection Cost.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

connection distance (ft) = 600

distance rate ($/ft) = 7.5
