Plan changed without my authorization

I called in to find out if I could watch my TV channels from my laptop. They told me I had to upgrade to a multiroom system and I said that would not be something I would be intersted. My plan is $59.99 50/50 Fios and Local TV channels. I was getting HBO free for the first 3 months. She later mentioned to me there was a free box I could get to watch my tv channels since I had told her I didn't want to be paying for the router and cable box which added $22 to my bill. I agreed to sending me the box since it was going to save me money. I week later a recived two boxes, one multi media box and one adaptor box. They I got a letter in the mail that said my plan was about to change on the 3rd of october, I was confused.

I contacted a rep and she told me the previous agent had made changes to my account because I wanted to wach my live tv channels on my laptop and that she sent me the media box. First, the media box doesn't offer a way to watch the live channels, second, I didn't request the media box. This box is costing me $16/mo that I didn't agree too. I asked her to cancel the media box service. At this point I had already returned the router and cable box, now I'm in the process of returning the media box and to top it off, they are asking $25 to send me a cablecard???? 

This managed to cancel my original plan which I mentioned in the begining and on top of it now I have a 2 year agreement with verizon???? Why are agents changing plans on customers? Is this verizons business plan, call customer service to get a service agreement? Or is it possible that the customer service agents have poor training and need to hit quotas to keep their jobs and the cost of customer disatisfaction?

How do I get my original plan reinstated? Who do I have to email to have this looked at by a professional?  Please someone help me!
