BASKING RIDGE, N.J. – During this unprecedented period challenging the world’s health and economy, Verizon stands ready to serve our customers.

 

Verizon’s networks have been engineered to perform during moments of crisis and disaster such as hurricanes, snow storms and flooding. During this time of heightened worry and concern, our primary goal is to keep our customers, employees and society connected to the things that matter most to them: their family, friends and business customers.

 

Verizon is closely monitoring network usage in the most impacted areas. We will work with and prioritize network demand in assisting many U.S. hospitals, first responders and government agencies, as needed. We will provide updates to our consumer and business customers on our network performance, offering help and support for their connectivity needs, tips on how to work in this new environment and more.

Something isn't right.  This news item says (when you click into it) that upgrade fees are waived starting March 18.  However, when I just tried to do an equipment upgrade, the checkout is trying to charge me a $50 upgrade fee.  Also, I'm chatting with an agent and am being told the upgrade fee is unavoidable.  Anyone else think something is out of whack?

Is Verizon waiving fees for their prepaid customers too?? Are is it just for small businesses and homeowners??
