In my current building, all we have is TWC (now Spectrum) and it's actually
given better speed and more reliability. My worry is, if they're kicked
out, assuming we won't get municipal fiber, is what will replace them? Will
it be worse?

I wish that they would just kill the monopolies as punishement. That's
about the only thing that will really help consumers.

Do something like, you blew it, now you are no longer have any monopolies
you were given.  

Ah well, wishful thinking.
