Ubuntu doesn't 'provide' support.  Ubuntu is an operating system.

A company, such as your local Linux-exports, or Canonical, provides support.

The reason that these companies will provide at the *same* of support for
the *same* price is that otherwise it would be more economical to go with
Red Hat.

The difference is that you have the freedom to choose a support-supplier;  
perhaps one that provides a better service, or for less money, or a
longer-period...  You are not tied down.
