My horrible experience with Verizon FiOS

Okay, wow. First of all, let me say, my experience with Verizon has been even WORSE than my experience with Comcast, which I did not believe possible.

I signed up for Verizon internet two months ago, 49.99 for 2 years. The customer service rep on the phone told me when I asked that there would be no activation fee. I confirmed with him on the phone. Later, I recieve my first bill that is way higher than the customer service rep told me. I call and tell them I was supposed to have my activation fee waived. They admit this is a mistake and waive it.

NOW I recieved my second bill that was even higher than the first bill, I call and tell them about what happened last time, and the extremely rude and vapid customer service representative named {edited for privacy} (call was made evening of 10/29/14) told me that this was just a courtesy and the charge was valid when neither the person who signed me up, nor the customer service representative I talked to the first time told me this was the case. It was talking to a robot or a 5-year-old. She either didn't have the capability to help me or didn't want to. Why is everyone response I recieve from Verizon different? Why does the company run this way? I feel like Verizon is robbing me, and I find this unacceptable.

I am extremely disatisfied with my experience and would not recommend Verizon FiOS to anyone.
