Verizon lied to me

I called verizon to check on bundle costs.  I was told I could have the exact same service I've had for the last 10 years which was 1-3 mbps.  During the call I asked repeatedly about the speed available and was reassured I could keep all the same services and internet speed in this new bundle.  

Well that was a lie.  I have since learned that verizon no longer offers 1-3 in my neighborhood, only .5-1.  I was not told that. Three days later my service suddenly changed from 1-3 mbps (usually around 2.25) to .5-1 (usually around .6).  This is the dial-up speed I used to get about 20 years ago.  

I was never told that 1-3 mbps was no longer available in my area and was not told my speed would be turned down.  Verizon can obviously deliver the speed, they had been doing it for 10 years.  

I am a cinematographer and rely on streaming video for research and demonstrations of my work.  Many financial decisions have been centered around continuity of service.  I am now basically locked out of that research and promotion capabilities.

I am thoroughly disgusted with Verizon.  They used deception and lies to alter my service.  Be very careful with this company.
