I recently received an offer from Verizon to upgrade my internet speed to 75 Mbps for $5/month. I accepted the offer. I previously had a $99.95 triple-play package, so I expected to pay $104.95. Instead my package price was raised to $114.95. When I asked why, I was told that by accepting the new internet speed offer, I had violated the terms of my 2 year agreement and since one of the $10 discounts I previously had is no longer available, I now have to pay a higher package price. I then asked to be put back on my old package at the lower speed and was told that was not possible.
I think I should have been warned that accepting your offer would have this negative effect.

I know verizon doesn't care about us hard working people and they do not reward loyal customers who pay too much for their service anyway!! I have been a customer for about 4 years and instead of renewing discounts for those of us who pay way TOO Much for the monthly service the discounts expire and my bill jumped over $40 for my internet speed and they don't tell you it just appears on the bill. I agree that you have to watch your bill like a hawk {please keep it relevant}!!! There should be a rewarding for years of loyalty and a drop over time instead of constantly incresing fees for fios cable that's already been paid for many times over!!! They don't care about us period!!!
