Depending on where you live or do business, there are several cable companies that provide TV, Internet and phone services for residential and commercial locations.
In addition, you can mix and match services from different providers to get the best pricing.
Comcast, Time Warner (Now Charter), Charter, Cox, Optimum, Bright House Networks (now Charter), WOW, Frontier, Mediacom, Suddenlink, RCN and CableOne are the 12 largest Cable providers.
Chances are that you can be served by one of the big 3 cable providers: Comcast, Charter or Cox. Together, they service 73% of the US population, less dual coverage areas (very few, if any).
Cable companies do not typically offer competing services in the same areas as other companies.
You may be able to get DSL or satellite internet, or run a VoIP phone and substitute cable tv service with streaming video if you can get high speed internet where you are located.
With that being said, cable typically offers the fastest internet speeds and most tv channels priced competitively in markets with other service providers such as AT&T or Verizon.
Who your cable providers are depends on where you want to get service. There are a few cities that have 2 cable television providers, but many have have broadband internet services from smaller cable companies like Fairpoint Communications and Earthlink (acquired by Windstream in 2017).
