Moving to new address with Verizon service but still have to pay termination fee?

Hi! I currently have Verizon FIOS (Internet, Cable) and am actually moving from one apartment to another within the same building. I can get Verizon FIOS in my new apartment and thought it would be as simple as calling Verizon to transfer service... however today a Verizon agent on phone today was trying to get me to sign up to a new (comparably priced) service but I didn't want to mainly because it would require we extending my Verizon committment another 8 months or so. But I was told if I didn't sign up for new service, I'd have to terminate my existing service and pay a ~$160 termination fee?

So I'm not allowed to just transfer my existing service to a new apartment? I'm not interested in signing a new 2-year contract - would rather just keep my existing contract (which expires summer, 2017)...
