Corporations have to compete with each other for your dollar in a free market. They are accountable to their customers. Government has no competition and thus has no accountability.
I can petition the government and vote for new leadership. I have not such actions with a corporation who's only concerns are to their shareholders. Also, government does have competition, from other governments (disatified people will move and they lose their tax-base) as well as potential private agencies.

HAHA, did you type that with a straight-face? We are talking about ISPs after all. Competition, hehe, that's gold!
