Internet giants have worked strenuously to avoid being regulated as utilities.  Their argument is that utilities provide essential human services such as electricity, water, sewer.  There is no equivalency on the internet.  I beg to differ.  We lost our internet for a day and a half and it shut down remote work, email, research, shopping, streaming and every other thing we needed or wanted to do.  The internet has become a utility on which hundreds of millions of Americans rely.  It needs some regulation going forward to ensure citizens can accomplish daily tasks.  That doesn’t mean internet providers should be denominated as publishers, a responsibility and potential liability they shun.  It does mean that states and the Federal government should provide for internet for all, particularly for those in rural areas.  The essential value of the service can no longer be denied.  The internet is essential.
