In parallel to water or sewer service, telecommunication consists of services delivered over infrastructure. Many of the other advantages stem from services, or the characteristics of services, delivered at broadband speeds over open “pipes.” But one fundamental argument for a municipal network is that governments fund, deliver, and administer infrastructure so that services can be delivered to parcels in their jurisdiction.

Yolo County's FAQ page about broadband has several answers that develop these ideas. The Davis city_council historically has regulated the City's cable franchise agreement, using a Telecommunications Commission to oversee it (the Commission was disbanded in 2013; the franchise contract with Comcast expires in 2018).
