Complaint about service regarding new installation

Message 1 of 2


I am posting here since it seems like there is no other way in contacting Verizon customer service and file a formal complaint. 
I was moving last week to a new apartment and I called ahead to have my Fios service moved to the new place. The technician was scheduled to appeare between 3-7pm last Friday, 1/27. At 7pm I didn't receive any message from the technician or Verizon (no call, text, mail) and the thechnician didn't show up. So I called Verizon where after spending 40 min waiting for the representative to get in touch with the dispacher I was informed that my technician is still scheduled to come, and that I should wait longer because he might be runnig late at his previous job. It was almost 8pm at that time.

I waited till 9.30pm when I called Verizon again only to find out that the dispatch center is closed and there is no way to contact the technician to figure out what is going on. The only option given to me was to reschedule the installation.
And here is the best part:  the earliest available date was more than a week later, this coming Sunday 2/5. So now I have to live a week without internet. Just great.


I just wanted to let Verizon know that I will be canceling my contract as soon as its term will be up. I am more willing to give a try to another internet provider that deal with this crap.


Also, I am from the generation that doesn't own cable. I am more willing to pay for Amazon, Hulu and Netflix than pay you guys for cable. If you are not seeing that your way of doing buisness is ancient and that you are a dying dinosaur, that is your problem. There will be new technology coming, in 10-20 years that will put you out of buissness completely, but then it will be too late, since you will alienate all customers my age you could possibly have.
