  •  Landline (8+ / 0-)

    I have a Verizon land line that I pay $15/month for that includes all taxes.  The quality of the sound has been degrading over the past year, so I will call to complain and ask for repairs to the exterior lines.  I just get forwarded to the sales department for FiOS!  It pisses me off.  I get flooded with FiOS ads via snail mail.  Verizon has even sent people to my house at 8 pm at night to ask me to switch to FiOS.  The salesman told me bluntly that if Verizon can switch a few more people from POTS to fiber in the neighborhood, then they can stop maintaining the copper after that threshold is met.  Complete bullshit.  I am not changing...these companies promised the government that they would take care of this in exchange for certain treatment and now they want to renege.
