Another word for utilities is a public service.

A private utility is a utility that extends beyond public utilities, and meters.

Examples of private utilities can include electrical feeders and gas mains running through parking lots or to critical facilities such as hospitals or fire stations.

The different kinds of public utility services are service such as electricity, natural gas, water, telephone and telegraph; power, heat, and light; and community facilities for water, sanitation, and similar services.

An example of a public utility would be telephone service and electric service as well as natural gas service,
water etc.

Things that are considered to be a legal utility are essential commodities or services, such as water, electricity, transportation, or communication provided to the public by private business organizations.

These organizations are regulated by local, state and federal governments.

Public Utility Services are utilities such as telephone, electricity, water, natural gas, and other essentials that are connected to your home.

A public utility is a business that furnishes an everyday necessity to the public at large.

Public utilities provide water, electricity, natural gas, telephone service, and other essentials.

Utilities may be publicly or privately owned, but most are operated as private businesses.

A phone bill is classed as a utility bill.

Phone service is also considered to be a public utility.

Generally, utility expenses include electricity, gas, water/sewage and garbage disposal.

Sometimes, other services such as internet, cable TV and phone services are considered to be additional utilities since they are now considered standard in most American households.

A utility bill is a detailed invoice, issued and paid once a month from utilities, including electric, natural gas, water, and waste.

Utility bills for consumers and businesses are basically structured the same; businesses simply have many more accounts and charges to monitor than consumers.

Common utilities include water, sewer, electric, gas, trash, and recycling.

Technology subscriptions like cable TV, internet, security, and phone service can also be considered utilities. Home utilities are similar to utilities in an apartment, with one major exception: who pays the utility bills.
