It has been my experience that shoddy service generates higher need for "support" than does "non-shoddy" service.  In this regard, the price for "business" services should be less than "residential service" by a couple of orders of magnitude since it costs orders of magnitude more money to "support" shoddy services than non-shoddy services.

Considering that Aaron said 98% of their residential customers are on 
the free plan, and that they use Active-E with every 1Gbps customer 
getting a proper switch port, I'd hazard the bulk of their support 
queries to be non-techie customers needing software support (grandma, et 
al), or fibres being cut.

It wouldn't seem like they'd be getting calls about "speed" issues, 
which are most annoying ones :-).
