This (headline subtitle) is perfect.
It's a bit like saying your car is more important than gasoline. One is the utility, the other makes use of it.
Perhaps even better, it is like saying that the highway is more important than the car. Without the highway, where would you go 70+ MPH? Without gasoline, where would either be useful?
Sure, it's important, but not a utility as currently defined.
I would agree that there are those on the east coast who would rather have electricity first. Can't really do much internetting without it
