I've been with FiOS for a long time; I signed on the day FiOS was first available here on Long Island, NY. Many years ago I allowed our 2-year agreement to expire, and stayed month-to-month (since the price was the same).
I decided recently to see if there were any deals available. Long story short, I ended up speaking with Alice at Customer Retention.
The deciding factor to re-up would be if they would replace my red-band "Advanced Router" with a Quantum Gateway router, since we have debilitating 2.4GHz interference issues here (if either we or my neighbor uses a microwave or cordless phone, we lose internet).
Alice promised me a Quantum Gateway router if I signed for a two-year agreement (also upping my bandwidth from 35/35 to 50/50). She assured me -- twice during the call -- that I would be receiving this router, and said she wrote it into the agreement. Assurance was also given that I had 14 days to cancel and go back to my previous service level.
I agreed, and signed a two-year agreement yesterday (Feb. 2).
When I received the confirmation email, there was no mention of the router.
I called back this morning, and another customer retention rep -- and subsequently her supervisor -- said that there is no mention of the router on my account record, and that they cannot send one.
When I then asked to cancel my 2-year agreement (since the router was the deciding factor to renew) and return to my previous level of service, I was told that 35/35 no longer appears in their system, and that I would have to go to a SLOWER 35/20 -- for the same price that I was paying for 35/35 a day earlier.
I refused, and hung up.
At this point, what do you all suggest I do? Try to get a different supervisor? File a BBB complaint? I'm really at a loss here. I've never been in a breach-of-contract issue before this.
