I'm not exactly an advocate for the cable company... in fact I hate the 12 month gimmicks so much it has caused me to cancel cable TV and install an OTA antenna. Since then though I have been paying a steady sixty something dollars per month to get a great connection with no data caps. At first it was around 25Mbps and now it is at 50Mbps.... same company... same monthly bill. Furthermore, my bill will never go up... I specifically asked for the "none-promotional" rate (they wouldn't have given me the promo rate without TV or Telephone anyway).
