So I've been with Verizon for 2 years now and my services are up for renewal.
I decided to go to the Verizon website to check out what renewal / upgrade options were available to me. The usual prompt to talk to a CSR came up and thought what the hell, lets see what they can do for me.
The conversation started with them thanking me for being a loyal customer to Verizon, but then the conversation took a turn for the worst. Not so much with the agent but more of what he could or as the case is NOT offer me.
The CSR first informed me that I could have exactly the same package as I have now for an increase of just $10 m/o. I was even informed that my internet speed would increase from 35mb to 50mb.
However this was incorrect !
My current Triple Pay pack (purchased 2 years ago) was $109.99 m/o. I also have Multi Room DVR ($39.99 m/o) along with HBO ($16.99) With taxes etc my monthly bill is $186 ish.
After a long conversation with the CSR it appears that TRIPLE PLAY is now a whopping $154.99. For me that's nearly a $50 increase !
Add to this the $39.99 for multi room and an increased price for my HBO service of $19.99 and my monthly payments jumps from $186 to $219, an increase of $30.
This also includes the $5 monthly discount.
What I thought would be a painless transition to a new contract as now turned into me considering leaving Verizon. I can't justify paying $30 + taxes extra each month for the same services I've had for 2 years !
Is this really how Verizon say "Thanking for being a loyal customer"....
This is not a complaint against the CSR agent. Infact they were really helpful, its more a complaint about the treatment of so called "Loyal" customers !

As a side note, how do you cancel your service ?
It appears that I can do everything with my account , services, bills etc apart from cancel them !
"Cancelling Service" also doesn't show any results in the search box !

See my post nearby
with no changes to service
my bill jumped from $121.28 to $139
I don't have the option of quitting, my condo unit is
locked in to a long agreement but general dissatisfaction makes it
clear we will run not walk from Verizon service when we can.

OK.. I'm thinking of taking this further as surely this is false advertising !
On the front page of MY VERIZON
Note that it states "LOCK IN YOUR CURRENT BUNDLE DEAL PRICE FOR 2 YEARS !!!!"
OK, so heres is my current bundle deal ! as seen on my bill....
So why cant you do exactly what your website is telling I can.
Instead the CSR tries to sell my a bundle deal at $154.99 m/o !
