You can’t always get what you want—as Comcast found out when its $45.2 billion merger bid for Time Warner Cable collapsed in April 2015. Despite the mega-setback, the No. 1 cable TV and Internet provider has been on a good run. Its broadband business in particular is seeing robust growth, adding more than 1 million customers in 2014. Ditto its business services division, which is still relatively small but rising fast (revenue increased 22% in 2014, ending the year at over a $4 billion run-rate.) TV subscriptions, however, have been on the decline. The other metric that isn’t seeing rapid growth? Comcast’s customer service ranking.
