Lack of competition TWC has most of their customers by the balls, and they know it.
With the telcos giving up on wireline, focusing on wireless, and making deals with cable cos, things may get a lot worse unless we get some sort of competition going again.
The funny part is that folks have been complaining about "monopoly" broadband for years, but I've always felt that there was a somewhat reasonable amount of competition between cable, telco, CLEC-provided, and independent ISPs. Imagine how bad things will be if your only alternative is a wireless data plan. Ouch.
