Re: Bring on the damage awards...
It doesn't take 25 years for ROI for broadband, especially if it was rolled out during construction. Kind of removes "last mile" from last mile, don't you think?
3 years tops ROI.

Not speaking to ROI; that's not at issue - its a question of the vendor being able to finance the project, and therefore offer broadband/triple-play to an unserved community.
I would have never penned a 25-year agreement - 10 makes more sense, but obviously the monthly charge would be higher.
But this community *did* agree to it. Basic contract law applies - both ways. Who knows, maybe the defendants will successfully argue that "the vendor sucks", and prevail - but in doing so, they will raise the cost for anyone else seeking a similar MDU bid.
