Defective equipment is not being replaced on Kellers Church Road, Bedminster Township, Perkasie, PA

Verizon support was called several times to fix either a no dial tone, static, or noisy phone line over the past three months. The lineman did what he could to fix the line from the outside. The pole is fine. The issue is in the equipment building 1.5 miles from the house on Kellers Church Road.

The land line is necessary to receive calls about a sick relative who is immediate family.

The land line is unreliable, and unavailable again due to noise.

FIOS has been pushed as a service in our area. Our household refused due to frequent power outages and the FIOS battery in only good for up to 8 hours.

Why hasn't the defective equipment been replaced in the equipment building on Kellers Church Road? Is Verizon trying to force our neighborhood into a FIOS agreement? How will Verizon be convinced to replace defective equipment in order to ensure an open line is available for emergency use? Any suggestions?
