There is validity in some utility monopolization, such as electricity and water etc. it keeps quality consistent and reduces the need for more infrastructure. It also allows for more efficient government regulation of such essential services.

Of course we know that these points are all but arbitrary when it comes to internet service and the greed that people come to expect from corporations ultimately remains within the confines of the law, so that is what needs to change. We need to start getting the masses to look at reasonable internet service as an essential utility and harass local and state governments into regulating them in terms of quality and price, not just contract them for the area and then walk away from it.
