Horrible Customer Service (Billing)

I am writing this message in the forum because it is the last option in a string of options that have all been exhausted at this point. 

I just moved into a new building and was giddy about getting Fios. A month later, I am convinced Time Warner (who has awful customer service) is a better option because of the way we have been treated.

We were quoted $103.94 for our package with free installation. I clarified this multiple times with the building rep as we were considering other providers. She assured me installation was free and our monthly fees would be $103 and change. Our first bill came and it was for $188. $118 for monthly service and $70 for installation. I contacted her and she referred me to 1-800-Verizon. I tried that line multiple times and was quoted half hour wait times. Then I finally get through to someone and they apologize but say they can't do anything about the charge. Horrible customer service, horrible experience, in disbelief that a company could be so terrible to a brand new customer.
