Don't be silly. The cost is all down to how it's managed and who makes money out of it (and how much).

I can see the FCCs point on fixed price or capped installation fees since we are talking about national infrastructure here, but the Telcos should be responsible for all upkeep of the installations afterwards. The cities should not be making profits off what are basically just planning applications, but conversely should not be effectively subsidising either the installation or the upkeep.
