And that higher revenue can be used to create higher profits.

FTFY.

Monopoly think: Why waste perfectly good money on infrastructure when it can be used to make the bottom line bigger???

Cable companies spend Billions every year on infrastructure upgrades. Read the annual reports.

Has their infrastructure spending in absolute dollars increased proportionally as their customer base and revenues have increased?

I honestly wouldn't know it based upon what I see locally. Many of our utilities seem to be operating on a skeleton maintenance budget.

And yet somehow, all of their upgrades are crippled by a handful of users running BitTorrent. Or so they claim...

For TWC I see only $150 million devoted to upgrades of their $18 billion business. There are a few billion more for maintenance, subscriber boxes, and expansion, but those don't improve customer service to justify massive rate increases. It also appears that TWC's cost of bandwidth per data customer is about $1 per month!
