Ive seen several posts on this and, IMHO, Verizon needs to address a portion of their early termination fee assessment. In August I had to move for work, where I relocated did not offer Fios or any other Verizon service. I was a customer, or more realistically, revenue source, for Verizon for upwards of 8+ years at my previous residence. When I cancelled my service - again, because I moved to an area without service options - no one mentioned this early termination fee but there it was, nice and big, on my final bill. These are the same people that took over a week to restore my phone, internet and tv service when it went out (but did have the courtesy to credit me the grand sum of @ $3.50 for my trouble). In short, it strikes me at best as a questionable business practice and I can assure you that Verizon will never see one more dime from me as a customer. I wil be happy to share my thoughts with friends and family who might be considering Verizon as a provider.

The crazy thing is I had the fee canceld a while back but then my move got put on hold and when i went to ask to cancel the early termination fee again they assessed the fee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love their cable service and wish i could take it with me...but i can't because of some contract they have with some entity.!!!!!!!!!! its almost like Verizon is my landlord and charging me an early cancelation of rent!!!!!! **bleep**.....how is this legal????????? YOU CAN"T OFFER A SERVICE IN MY AREA SO YOU WANT TO CHARGE ME????? sorry we had to move and could not continue your service......sorry i will not be recommending your service to anyone ever again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
