Take over the existing contract


I would like to share my recent experience. So, last Friday I was ordering my FIOS and just before clicking on CONFIRM, I decided to chat and latter to call specialist because I found stupid to have a technician coming at our apartment as there was already existing line and box. In fact, the specialist told me that I don’t need to create a new order just to take over the existing contract. Which I was accepting as I was said that I will be charged as a new client, means for the 1st year for 100/100 internet plan, 39,99$ (+ 10, + taxes).

On Saturday morning when I discover the mail informing me that the contract is already on my name, I also discover that my plan is charged 106$ (like the person who’s plan I was taking over). After speaking to support, nobody could help me to give the price as a new client. So I asked to cancel all the transfer. The line is cut and I have a box to return (which I even did not use). I am very angry about this situation, plus I am now with no internet! Did somebody experience this and what should I do?
