Unauthorized change to my service plan

Message 1 of 3
(1,971 Views)
On April 21st I called Verizon Fios and spoke to 7 different reps (all who claimed they were in the retention dept) about lowering my rate plan (Verizon Triple Play) which was increased in April 2014 because my $20 valued customer discount expired. They said that in order to do that I would have to downgrade from 25/25 to 10/15; or change my tv package from extreme hd to select package. I was not okay with this idea and asked them why can't they just give me another $20 valued customer discount (good for 12 months). They told me they can only do that if I upgrade my services. I was completely turned off by their business model and asked to speak to a supervisor. All 7 agents told me a supervisor would call me in 24-48 hours.

Five days later, I never received a call not from 1 supervisor (consideringI made 7 different requests with each agent). If that wasn't bad enough, I come to find out that my services were changed without my permission on April 21st by one of the reps I have spoken to. They bumped me up to 50/25 Internet, and downgraded my tv package from extreme to select.

When I called Verizon today to try to resolve this issue and have them reinstate my services, they tell me I can no longer go back to the 25/25 because that plan has expired and they no longer offer it as an option. So I asked them to keep me at 50/25 but to change my tv package back to how I had it (extreme package) they told me if will be about an extra $15 a month after taxes. Which means I have to pay $15 more a month to fix a Verizon employee's mistake who changed my services without my permission. I find this to be totally unfair and want a Verizon to compensate me for this $15 difference. As a consumer, I should not pay for a company employee mistake in order to get the same services I had before I made those unfortunate phone calls on April 21st. Verizon should take the $15 loss, not the customer.

Since they don't offer the 25/25 Internet speed anymore, I should not have to pay more now that they upgraded me to 50/25 (un-reversible) without my consent/authorization.

On 4/26 spoke to supervisor Eddy (Tampa, Florida) no resolution
On 4/26 spoke to supervisor Nelson (Tampa, Florida) no resolution
On 4/26 Live chat session with Celine - no help.
