horrible internet speed and direct tv not working properly

I am having a horrible experience with verizon.  

I have had issues setting up appointment times, technicians showing up at wrong times, technicians showing up but not letting us know problems were "fixed", long phone calls with no result and now there is no other way to contact verizon other than calling again which i refuse to do.

we had switched to verizon through a direct tv bundle but our connection appears to be too slow for the tv to work properly. verizon apparently 'fixed' the problem but when i told them it was still too slow according to direct tv, they agreed that the internet needs an upgrade.  so why was i given this particular bundle to begin with?  shouldn't verizon know what speed works with direct tv?  and why do i now have to pay more for an upgrade when i was quoted a price for my bundle (which is why we switched).  is this just another way to make us switch over??  and then trick us into paying more money?  

I fully believe i should not be charged for something i was not told about to begin with.

so now i sit and wait for my faster speed internet.  no technician needs to come out to my house this time supposedly however it will not be ready for another 5 days.  when i asked the woman on the phone why i had to wait 5 days if no technician was coming she had no answer. 

i will wait and see how it goes, but i am extremely frustrated with every aspect of verizon and am unfortunately fully regretting making the switch.
