    No. Internet is a service, not a utility.

    "Utility bill" has little statutory significance unless it is a write off for a company or commercial endeavor. A company can write off internet and maintenance fees as utilities but private (non-commercial) users are not affected in that regard.

    for some purposes, yes. however, it isn't considered when determining whether whether a family is underprivileged or poor ... it's a luxury for such purposes.

    No because it is not a requirement as a basic service. Gas, electric and water are basic services that are generally required.

    It can be, but businesses have internet accounts as well. Yes, for residences internet is a utility bill, but some people don't have internet.
