One morning verizon just turned off my internet for no reason. But they say to reactivate it i have to join a new plan. I was paying 32 dollars for 3mb internet but now i would have to pay twice that to get my speed back. I made all my payments on time and have been a loyal customer but they decide to try and force me to pay more for internet. This is a warning to all u out there verizon doesnt care about u and willdo this to u as well

I was enrolled in DSL guaranteed to remain at $19.99 for as long as I didn't change service.  I recently got notice of a $5 automatic price increase.  When I spoke with customer representative Karen, she questioned the existence of such a guarantee and told me to fax the agreement.  I resisted, not having fax available, and she became testy.  I asked for her supervisor who she said was not available other than by call-back.  I requested call-back.


Garcia called within a couple of hours.  She had a similar reaction but was not as testy.  She asked me to mail a copy of the contract to 65 Frankiin St office, Buffalo.  I sent with the observation, "It is troubling to me that you guarantee a fixed price for life and then change it.  It's further troubling that you place the onus on the customer to correct your mistakes."


It has been two weeks since I sent the documents.  There has been no response from Verizon.  I tried find "live chat" on the web site with no success.  This seemed the most logical way to find an answer.
