I think it's appropriate for municipal governments to run utilities though. I recall when my hometown's electric and gas utility went private, service went downhill. Now, the power company I currently have is a co-op and has great service, while the same private utility that's now a few miles down the road has constant outages and problems.

Internet really is a utility at this point anyways.
