Lack of customer service

Just became a Verizon customer. I am already regretting the decision!

The equipment they installed is old or rather older and very large. When I called to inquire about getting the newer equipment they tell me sure, it will cost you an extra $50 to upgrade the equipment (onetime fee). I tell them they sent the wrong stuff and that they should have offered the new equipment in the first place, which they did not offer when I placed the order for the service. Now due to, as they state, “their company policy” they can’t upgrade unless they charge the fee. They refuse to comp the upgrade fee. They install tech indicated that the old equipment is all they have in inventory for installations.


This situation is **bleep**! Feels like a bait and switch scheme to me!


I suggest that everyone get away from Verizon as fast as possible!!!


Very, Very, Very poor customer service.
