Internet Activation Fee Not Waived.

I signed up for FIOS internet - 50/50 and was told that apart from my monthly internet fee and router rental fee, I would not be facing any hidden fees.  When I received my first bill, it included a $69.99 internet activation fee. What is wrong with this picture? Furthermore, I call the sales line to get this issue resolved, but was told that there is nothing they can do about it- that the internet activation fee cannot be waived. While being told this, I am looking at the Verizon FIOS bundle option seen here: which states that the internet activation fee is waived. 

As a new customer, I would have preferred to be have been told about this fee during the initial sales conversation. If you are going to tack it on without telling me, at lease remove it once I call about it, especially considering that you are offering the same deal online.

Once I told the sales rep that I would be cancelling my account and signing back up online, she told me that her system was down and that she would call me back. I have yet to receive that call back.
