I really urge everyone to cancel Verizon ASAP. My wife and I are moving to a new house. When I called to transfer service, I was told theat they don't offer any services in my area, leaving me with cancellation as my only option. The representative, MATTHEW, agreed, and then proceeded to tell me that I would be charged an early termination fee, anyway. Not wanting to argue with him, I completed the transaction, then asked to speak with a manager. It took me approxiamtely 5 requests to get him to stop telling me how generous Verizon has been and transfer me to a supervisor. Of course, the "supervisor" refused to do anything as well. Hope that $100 was worth it, cause I will NEVER be signing up with Verizon again for ANYTHING-- not cellular phone, TV, home phone, NOTHING. And I will definitely tell everyone I know about how ridiculous their policies are!!!!!!!!
As you may have seen in multiple threads, this is a common practice for providers.
Cable, cell, etc.
You sign up for a contract that gives you set pricing.
In exchange, the provider gets a guarantee of income to help amoritize their start up fees.
Just like how cell phone providers give you a discount on your new phone if you sign a contract.
Leave early, pay an ETF.
