Double play...TWC can't compete on Internet
TWC's latest rental modems are 8x4 channel bonded. They top out at around 300/65 (aka Comcast's latest tier), realistically...and that's pushing it. TWC could get 24x8 modems to get closer to a gigabit down, but they'd have to upgrade their plant a ton to find 24 internet QAMs (and they'd probably want 32 to spread load).
In short, TWC can't compete on speed with GFiber. They can compete on price, but they're the cable company so they don't like doing that. Competing on price is DSL territory.
So what should TWC do? What it's better at than Google: TV (more channels) and phone (GFiber doesn't have it). Push TV service in the $50 range (maybe a bit more if there are some really good channels that Google doesn't have) and phone service in the $20 range (Sprint's home phone over CDMA service is $20) as part of a double play bundle, then send folks to Google for Internet since TWC can't compete there. Revenues will go down, but TWC doesn't have to upgrade their plant a ton to match (or even get close to) GFiber specs.
