I have had no landline dialtone since at least Monday 5/19 (and still don't.) I called on 5/20 and a ticket was created with a "committment" of Friday 5/23 by 9 p.m. The ticket showed up on my online account. Friday 9 p.m. comes and goes with no dial tonw. Verizon extends th "committment" to Saturday 5/24 by 9 p.m. Again, nothing. I did drive by the worksite on 5/24 and had to ask some Verizon worker (who was chatting away on his cell phone!) what was going on and he said they'd be working Saturday and Sunday. He claimed that new construction (on th opposite side of a 4 lsne highway mind you with no backhoes or bulldozers) cut a line. He said something about paper lines, but I have no idea what that means. Today, Sunday 5/25, I saw a Verizon cherrypicker near my condo complex entrance, so I figure everything is nearly done ... at least they're no longer down the street 1/4 mile. By 5 p.m. on Sunday 5/25, I still didn't have a dial tone and THE ONLINE UDATE SAID THERE WERE NO OPEN TICKETS. I had to call repair ... using a prepaid cell (and wasting time going through the prompts and being on hold only to have it confirmed by the repair rep at Verizon THAT THE WORK WAS COMPLETE SND THE REPAIR CREW HAD FIXED THE PROBLEM. LIARS!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!! The repair rep also said I that I should have bern called or a visit to my door, but neither happened. IS THIS INCOMPETENCE OR FRAUD?????????? Did the crew want to rack up overtime on Saturday and Sunday, but keep their Memorial Day plans free? I can't get a straight answer OR a dialtone! I'm at my wit's end and I can't find a (much) higher up at Verizon to hear my pleas. The only thing a service rep will say is PUC. There's got to be a better way to get this fixed NOW (not the "new committment date of 5/27 by 9 p.m.") Even in the eorst of this winter's storm, cable and electric didn't take this long. The line worker said Verizon was filing a claim against the construction developer BUT WHAT ABOUT FILING ON MY BEHALF ... credit for lost accessibility is no longer enough!! Remember, I ( and the 38 to 400 customers also affected ... depending on which service rep you talk to) have had no 911 service. Riddle Memorial HOSPITAL is less than 1/4 of a mile away and in the opposition direction ELWYN RESIDENTIAL school for the developmentally disabled is also 1/4 a mile away.
I AM AT MY WIT'S END !!!!!! HELP ... and please, don't tell me to check my status page for another empty promise. Verizon, you have the prepaid cell phone number.
