(C) has not only captured customers from other phone companies but also forced these companies

it is more clear to say "these companies" instead of them, which is ambigious. therefore, A is a trap..

Present perfect tense parallelism eliminates E. "It" in B is unecessary. D is wordy and "them" in A has no clear antecedent.

Clearly C.

" them" in A and B has no clear antecedent.
not only...but also must be used for the same subject, thus D is out.
C is correct.

It might be of no use to write my explanation here since I agree with all the explanations above. :)

I pick (C).

Consider between A and C, but C is preferable coz these companies is more clear than them
