Landline bill increased 118% in one month

I've been a rural Virginia customer of Verizon for 42 years.  I live in a cell service dead zone, have pitiful internet and the bill for our landline went from $48 per month to $93 per month.  I called but the foreign support person was useless.  I despise Verizon with every fiber of my body.
