you know, there's these things which tend to contain marketshare. I believe the phrase is monopoly.
you might want to learn what competition is, and competitive offerings are - because TWC is neither competitive nor have they had competition before google.
Cable is not a monopoly.
should learn what the term means.
They and they alone, have recognized the opportunity to compete
with telco, who has chosen to offer only overpriced and/or underperforming product lines. Broadband speeds and rates reflect the extent of their investment, and that is why they enjoy their market share.
Telco is failing, precisely because cable competes.
Cable franchises are not protected. There no legal barrier for entry to market for legitimate private overbuilders.
If you want to make a case for yet another round of re-regulation, in which cable's former monopoly would be legally re-established, complemented by wholesale requirements, you are so welcome.
But be careful what you wish for, as that will result in only short-term gains, followed by long-term pain, as you will eliminate the competition and competitive threat that exists today and replace it with slovenly postal service efficiency.
