None that I know of. It seems the companies you mention pretty much have a monopoly of providing service throughout Chicagoland.

I can tell you with Comcast, if you call and complain about the price, or threaten to shut off your service, they will often give you a special promotional rate for a while. Again, this is not a guarantee, but I and a few others have done it on various occasions.

Well I live in Grayslake and I know for sure for this suburb city the only phone company that we have to use from is AT&T. I tried all the other phone companies such as Sprint, Comcast and other little local companies and they each said they do not offer svc in the area. AT&T has the area locked up whereas you have no option but them.
