FioS Privacy Concerns and Use in Billing

Message 1 of 3

I recently called in as my Verizon FioS bill had climed up from $55 for the 50-50 plan to $95. I was looking for a reasonable reduction in rates.


Your representative told me that I had "too many devices" in the home, and went on to try and upsell me.


I am really upset that Verizon would monitor the number and nature of devices I have within my home. All I ask is that you carry my data in and out of my house securely at the bit-rate you contracted without prying into my business. I do not understand why Verizon would record the number of users or devices in my home and use it to impact my billing.


Thanks for explaing this to me.

ps: I'm switching over to Optimum online because they are half the price and did not ask about my devices.

Don't expect Verizon to read your post.  These forums are meant for Peer to Peer support.  Only a few admins might view it and they are not really able to do anything for you about pricing.
