no service for a week

First appointment for 12/15 was not honored, after many agents and much time it was rescheduled for 12/22.  As soon as the technician finished installation, having cut off the previous providers wiring, he tells me there is no connection with Verizon.  

After much effort and many agents I was told all will be set in 48 hours.  No such luck.

Again, after many agents and retesting was told it will be done within the next 48 hrs.

On 12/27 PM I am told there is a problem with "porting."  I am on high priority.  Another 24 to 48 hours.

Who runs Verizon?  Does this require rocket scientists?  

If there is no connection available at my zip code, why take me as a customer.

And still today there are advertisements to subscribe in this zip code.

I am totally lost as to what comes next.
