Cable Franchise Complaints

I am getting notices from Comcast that I need a new modem/router. I elected to buy my own rather than rent theirs. My modem/router seems to be working fine and is only a couple of years old. The ones Comcast recommends are expensive - $200 to $500. Is this information accurate? I have minimal trust for Comcast based on my previous experience with them. Is there any hope for additional cable and internet providers for Alexandria in the near future? Thanks
