It was competition in the electric utility industry that ultimately led to the industrialists and politicians getting together to create regulated monopolies. This led to broadcasting being treated the same.

Actually, communications regulations predate the electric power industry. The International Telegraph Union (now the International Telecommunications Union) was formed by a treaty signed by 20 countries in 1865. Postal regulations in the U.S, are much older as are European optical-telegraph regulations, which began in the 18th century.
