I imagine a day where wifi is a municipal service like roads or water. Probably too early for that yet though.

No thanks. Are we considering the unintended consequences? How could this power be abused (ie. war on terror or the war on mp3 downloaders)? How could this government service fall into complacency and technological development be adversely impacted? Do you realize that government services are very often delivered at much higher costs than what the private sector does? Delivering Internet based on the political process is repugnant to me.

I for one don't want the authorities to take over Internet service in my area. I also don't want the duopoly to continue.
