It almost reads like a conspiracy. :) First the local government only allows a couple of companies to provide services. Next make upgrading services as difficult as possible with plenty of regulation. Create a huge incentive for lobbying and corruption. Then when people get upset, the government offers to take over the service themselves for the good of the people. Next up we are shocked, shocked to find that the government is misusing the information against their citizens or political opponents that try to oppose the ruling class.
