Generally i will say all the examples you listed above are made "free" to
some communities by government of those communities paying heaviliy for
them. Now cost does not necessrily mean money, it could mean reducing their
sovereignty(regulation rules and service licences) to encourage service
provider to trive at a reduced cost.

>From all indication you are saying government should also include free
access to Internet in their basic economy amenities provision. Thats fine
so long as it will not make them shut it down at will, but i hope you
understand that someone is definitely paying.
