FiOS' overall sports package really has about 5 steps below DirecTV (which I can no longer get due to the orientation of my building); but then so has everyone elses. However, now that every other provider in my area has SEC Network and FiOS doesn't, it actually may make sense to pay the ETF and go back to old-fashioned cable.
I'll lose some internet speed, but then the only thing I really ever wanted 75Mbps for was to watch Netflix, which FiOS throttles. What a disappointment this service has been.
Looks like they have turned off the comments section of the FiOS Facebook page. Guess they didn't want to deal witht the substantial increase in heat that is coming tommorrow. See, somebody over at VZ is paying attention.
How many times did you post in the comments section complaining about the SEC network? Maybe they banned you.. I can post there just fine. It's like this thread decided to spam the facebook page trying to get the attention of Fios. They'll get the network before the start of the football season. BOOK IT!!!!
LAUNCH DAY!! I just called customer service to see if they had any more news about the SEC Network and the lady said that they had not recieved anymore news about the channel being added to the lineup. She also said that she'd had several calls about it already this morning. So everyone should call in and get your voice heard if you want this channel!!!!! I also asked her what my ETF would be, so I told her that Brighthouse is covering customers fees to switch and that I would call back. She didn't bat an eye. She even told me what options to push on the self service menu. So obviously they don't give a rats **bleep** if they retain customers or not!!! They are making the choice very easy to make, people need to call in and get their voice heard!!!
OK folks: Just remember your place and don't complain. Just who do you think you are? Remember--You are ONLY the customer and you don't count. I am sick of being lied to; I simply have no faith in FIOS. I have been complaining about the SEC network situation for months now. My contract ends in September and all I have received is a "sweet" note from Verizon that I can renew NOW or risk my rates going up! No mention of the SEC network queries I have made. What do I care? No SEC--then no more worry---I will be gone. Then it will become my duty to complain on every consumer website I can locate. FIOS has been a good network with really crappy management. I am angry and bitter.
