Something to be said for being in D/FW
In my little burb (not the one to the left, it's closer to Keller), Verizon just finished wiring southern Keller--the part served by AT&T--and, I supposed, figured they'd do the next town over while they had the trucks out. Since Verizon came in, there's now five video providers (AT&T, Verizon, Charter, DISH and DirecTV, in no particular order) and four Internet (Verizon, AT&T, Charter and Clear). It's a pity none of them are playing off each other to keep prices down, though...

If prices stay the same, then you have a Cartel in your area.
A thing that the U.S.D.o.J. frowns upon, and every state attorney general aren't too happy with either.
