lost all fios service - very poor cable drop install - cannot get service

Message 1 of 3
On 6/28 lost all FIOS (Voice, data, TV). Followed steps on internet and rebooted ONT as advised. No change. Called sevice and was promised service from 1 pm to 5 pm. Cell phone rang, missed call (was in other room) and immediately called service. After 20 minute wait was informed service call was cancelled as no one was home which is false. Missed entire day of work. New service was promised for 6/29 from 8 am to 12 pm. No service as of yet. Called Verizon again and was informed service was running late. Why did they not call or e-mail/text??

An aquaintance (ex Verizon lineman) inspcted drop cable which is half buried and half aerial. Aerial cable from street pole is 5 ft from ground and wrapped on steel fence and around tree limbs. Freed from branches and fence. No change. Service restored after 2 hours with no explanation, but drop cable from street must be properly re-installed.

Service disruption cause has not been determined and cable drop install on fence is a discrace for Verizon. Expect disruption to reoccur if cable is not properly installed.

Please escalate this 2 day service request. 2 lost work days for customer, no return calls or text and no resolution of loss of service.

A response is requested before we call the PUC.
