you would think that a communications company would be able to communicate with itself....  perhaps they need Nextel's direct connect walkie-talkies...

That's definitely the first time I've ever heard of someone switching TO Comcast for the customer service.  Good luck with that

As to going back to comcast for customer service--I had been a subscriber to comcast for 2 years. Any time I had an issue their customer service was responsive and active in correcting the problem. Others may not have had good service from comcast, but my experience with verizon has been negative. {please keep it relevant} 

Update: My neighbor across the street, who still has the fios cable coming out of the box in his neighbor's yard, running across the neighbor's yard, draped over the fence, then strung along the top of the ground and around the back of his house to the service box after 2 months, finally got someone from verizon out today to look at it and confirm it was screwed up.

duh.

Now, of course, they promised to be out within 2 weeks to bore underground and connect his cable properly. Other houses in this neighborhood still have cable draped across the ground to their house after almost 3 months.

I am still hanging in with verizon to give them a chance to make things right. They know they are in breach of contract now, so maybe they'll do something (the contract requires them to run the fios cable to the house in the same manner as the copper phone wire, which in this case is underground).

Techman28:

What additional information would you like? I have explained the entire sordid story to so many people at verizon with no results, but lots of promises for action, that I'm reluctant to explain it all again. Perhaps you can send me a PM--I don't know how to send a PM from within this forum; when I click on your user name I get a page with your profile, etc., but no way to PM you. Perhaps if your email address wasn't hidden...

Just out of curiosity, what can you do from TX to resolve the problems my neighbor and I have had with properly burying the fios cable?

Thanks.

As someone who is thinking about switching from brighthouse(time warner) cable to fios, I will be watching this thread closely over the next few days. Between the limited access to usenet and this, I'm becoming a little concerned about signing a one year contract. Please let us know if your issue gets resolved.
