No its the fact thats how those contracts work. It seems that you always stick up for the customer unless you feel that you should defend the company. But Frontier has the right to pull out and they will. You can't force them to offer services if they choose not to. And you can NOT pull their network from them. Frontier would SUE the states and in deed win. That's how taking a company's assets or anyone's assets work. You MUST pay fair market value for them. It works the same way when the gov't takes your land to sells it to someone to build the next big mall. The Gov't pays fair market value.
And that's how the Telco's work. Look at Americast and look at when they left- just before SBC and look at what they chose to do again. They got back into the TV business. What did ATT do prior to that- they were in the TV business- they sold that too. In the end- they only got back into it only to leave again when it goes belly up due to they can't get the customers to meet shareholder demands for $$$$.
