Re: It doesn't have to be FREE Again, bondholders are guaranteed a rate of return and have to stick around for the long haul. They also know in what they're investing, so they have a vested interest in a project succeeding. Investors in a publicly owned company can pull out whenever they feel like, with no long-term commitments, because "it's a tech company, it's supposed to make gobs of money overnight."
Also, a muni has to out-innovate its competitors to get customers. Price competition works only when the competitors are overpriced. Out-innovation is good for broadband speeds...
