Digusted with the lack of Customer Service and Complete disregard for Inconveniences

Its a shame I have to come here in order for my voice to be heard. I have spent many hours on the phone with technical support and customer service and it has been to no avail. As a longstanding verizon wireless customer I assumed the high level of customer service experienced there would be translated when I decided to pay MORE money and switch from DirectTV to Verizon FIOS. The last few days have proven me wrong as I still remain without internet, tv, or phone service due to a technical issue beyond my fault. I spent an hour on the phone yesterday only to find out a technician would need to be scheduled and sent to my home today. Working in sales, I have reports I must complete each day requiring use of a WIFI connection so this was already becoming an inconvenience on top of the fact I had to be available between 8-12 and miss a half day of work. Not only did the technician never show up but lied in the notes and stated he/she made an attempt to reach me by phone. My call log shows no incoming phone calls during anytime between 8-12 today. When I called tech support to check on the status of when they would be getting someone back out they informed me I would have to wait until tomorrow afternoon before someone could come out. I expressed my extreme displeasure with having to miss more time from work (which is additional money lost) and inconvienece as I would have to move my day around to find a place with free WIFI after work hours to complete my reports. Traffic in DC is not friendly and this has completely turned me off. Veriozn FIOS is unreliable and the level of service I have received to date has been sub par to put it politely. Offering me 2 pro-rated days back on my service doesn't even begin to compensate for the missed time out of work nor the gas and inconvience of running to the nearest free WIFI so I am able to do work required of me. I decided to switch to FIOS because of the verizon name assuming the quality of the product and level of service would be one I could depend on. This has been the farthest thing from what has taken place. I now have another appointment tomorrow and quite unsure if anything at all will happen. I need some somebody from corporate to receive this message as it took me forever to find this forum to express myself and try to come to some resolve to make things right in this situation. None of your customer service reps possessed any information on how to contact corporate and due to my experience I can see why. You all would likely have to hire full time stafff to accomodate the level of complaints coming in. Pending how this situation is resolved, I may or may not take my story to social media and as many review and blog sites as possible. Verizon FIOS has ruined my day and I hope that someone will care enough to make this situation right.

I can understand your frustration with the missed appointment. What i don't understand is how do you think this is being installed without you taking time off for the installation to be completed. Schedule your appointment when you are off from work so that it will be more convenient for you to be home.

Verizon made a mistake and didn't show up.  This caused me additional time out of work and that's not acceptable.  If you can't understand that I'm not sure exactly how to translate it to you in a clearer way.  Do you work for Verizon?
