I live in Rolling Hills Estates, CA in a neighborhood names "The Ranch" and all around me are neighborhoods with FIOS but mine . A few years ago I believe Verizon came in and accidentally drilled into an electrical line, and my neighborhood sued them. This may be the reason why FIOS is still not in my neighborhood, but I'm just curious if they really care about stuff like that. I'm dying here it takes me 5 hours to upload 1gb, and 45 minutes to download 1gb, I can't take this anymore it's driving me crazy. BRING US FIOS! I'm about to switch to Cox because I can't handle how slow DSL is, and I have the most expensive one.
I think that Verizon is a large enough Company to realize that they should recognize our Olympic winners. Especially, the dedicated and talented American women and in particularly the five gymnastic young women that fought with all they had to make America champs. They call these heroes the Fierce 5. The captain of this team, Ms. Alexandra Raisman should be rewarded for her fierce courage in bring this ship home sailing with Olympic gold and American pride.
In paying my monthly bill, I was confronted with an announcemen that I had"won" a valuable prize. After some 100 mouse-clicks, I was led down a rabbit-hole of numerous ads and subscriptions, with successive reminders that just one more click and I'd get my reward. This feels a lot like bait and switch, although I'm sure that Verizon, a reputable and multi-billion $$ corporation would not intentionally waste their subscribers' time with such tactics. If these are necessary, please post an early notice that not all subscribers who are announced as "winners" will actually win. Or, preferably, please review these ads with your customer Ombudsman.
1) Would be nice to not have to log in to site every time I restart browser. Even if I click stay logged in for 2 weeks, I still have to click sign in button every time I come back (after having closed browser). Understand people may be concerned about security as login uses account login. But on private PC, should not be a problem.
2) Clicking Back to Idea Exchange should take you back to where you were vs to 1st entry of Hot Ideas. Click on New Ideas, then go a couple of pages in, then click on an idea to read comments. If you hit Back to Idea Exchange, you go back to 1st entry under Hot Ideas. Then you have to navigate down to get back to where you were.
It seems that I continually receiveFIOS advertising after moe than 4 years being a pioneer in the Bowie, MD market. Not: I get system notices when their a battry reload, or sometimes I get messages with downtime, and other times I get messages selling me on a price at half what I'm paying, but never offers me a reduction in my rate. There is no reson to sell me on your system, especially when it is annoucnement to raise my rates. However, ir your system can ID a probelm reaching my router box with emergency notices, and can tell me when my battery should fail, plus reminders to replace batteries and settings remotely; perhaps, just perhaps, you can tell your techies to make sure I don't get messages for new subscribers, or sales pitches with competing pricing for new subcribers with half pricing for two years than what I am paying after more then four years. Your system should either tell me something to reduce my cost of your service or send rewards for being a loyal customer who waited 6+ years for you to opticize our complex with fiber optics. I like the system very well after the kid sold me on the 1430.1580, and 1640 capability and even introduced it's concept in Moscow (Soviet Union) in 1990 when speaker as CEO of SofTool USSR "90, a software application Conference, no in it's 24th year this next October. I was aslo one of the first to have a Motorola - Bendx brick before you even had cell service. Yet, Bob Williams told me before your Bell Atlantic became Verizon, I would receive a commission on your securing a DoD contract after I demoed it in 1984 in the Pentagon. So, it is important that you research your capability to select messages for newbies and subscribers unles you are offering something I don't have with your costly service pack.
CASH is exceptable or perhaps a chair on the board.
Oh! While flying from NY to IN in 1984 with General Thompson, commander of the Army Materiel Command, in an Army aircraft; I phoned my wife with my "Brick" and not to be outdone, General Thompson asked me if he call call his wife - Yes - then he asked how much it would cost. I told him I had no idea, but when the multiple bills came from every tower we over-flew, I told him to pay the ones he thought were located on our route. Note: When Sprint bought Nextel; they offered dual-channel phones for International, and I spected-out that phone buildt by Nokia. I also, after introduction to their service experienced their miscalculation of the International market after Soviet breakup. I received a bill for my international use of $8,000 with 20 cent per minute program. THey failed to ID CIS break up on their contract. but negelected to pass-through that Billion resolve after I agreed not to take them to court.
Over the last year I have spent a lot of time in the Netcong area. I am amazed at what I see re: your employees and trucks. On many days I see your employees and their trucks parked in the Adam's Bakery and Bagel in Budd Lake up to 9:30am. When are these employees supposed to start work?
Recently, I walked near the Ford dealership near Wiltop Rd., Netcong. There were 3 trucks parked on the side of the road. One guy was on a pole working. One guy was in his truck reading a newspaper. The 3rd guy was in his truck sleeping. It was 3pm. I don't think they were on their own time.
Yesterday I was downtown Netcong. 3 verizon trucks parked in the Quikchek parking lot. Coincidence? What was that a koffee klotch?
We all know labor costs have a direct bearing on phone, cable and other costs. Who supervises these employees? What controls do you have in place to monitor employee performance. We don't have FIOS in Netcong and I was looking forward to it in the next 50 years but I am having my doubts re: possible costs.
It should be right on your home page as soon as you sign it.. I also hate how I had to get a bundle with a phone when I have no need for a house phone.. I signed up online and the person said I had to get all 3 when I didn't want to.. Why can't you just let people get what they want and not trick them into buying stuff they do not want ? Once I figure out when my contract is over IM goanna have to look into something else.
It would be really create to have a Verizon network here in the Caribbean. My current internet provider is extremely unstable and does not provide the promised speed, while I am using it. If you can set up a network over here I would be extremely happy and I am sure that thousands of other Caribbean who are stuck using this extremely slow network would agree as well
I've had a lot of trouble posting anything to it, I discovered that you now are prevented from posting a message unless you submit a category (see the area on the right).
Thanks to ornahp, a Moderator who posted about this.
My suggestion is to include this instruction prominently right where the poster will see it, maybe above the posting window. I'll bet there are people who have tried to post ideas and gave up, especially after seeing the line about how "a few functions were impacted, including the ability to post new ideas to the Idea Exchange."
