Uh, that's because Time Warner Cable is run by complete idiots...

-Also Time Warner has no fiber network, so even if they wanted to compete they couldn't because they use coax cable - and when you put a lot of people on that it slows down big time.. works for business but try putting a whole lot of consumers on it that don't live near each other... and it fails hard.

-What Time Warner really meant was -were already robbing people blind for slow as hell internet, but most consumers don't know that because they came from AOL dial-up so they think our speeds are really fast. So we will just keep milking them..
