When will my Verizon Internet (DSL) installation or activation be completed?

I was scheduled to have my service start date be August 14th 2017. I set up my modem/router (D-Link) correctly on Sunday August 13th 2017 by myself. I used the 4G on my mobile phone (data) to accept terms/services.

August 14th, 15th, 16th, I am calling Verizon tech support every day and being told constantly that I should wait until the next day for central office to activate my internet connection.

On my modem/router, all lights are green (Power, WLAN, DSL, INTERNET), and all connections as are strong. My Laptop and mobile phone are able to connect to the wifi but are unable to load any web pages (google.com/facebook.com/anything).

On my last call on August 16th, I was informed that my installation/activation has been delayed and that it was escalated to the admin level. I was informed to wait for an additional 24-48 hours for an email from Verizon letting me know my service is ready. And that the support person I spoke with was unable to provide more information as to the nature of the problem.

I need an update on this situation and to have my service activated properly as soon as possible. It is extremely urgent that I get my wifi working. It seems the connection within my home (DSL/Modem/Router/Computer) is working but that central office is not activating my line despite attempts to (1) wait (2) refreshing my IP address (3) testing that my modem/router are properly functional.

How can I get Verizon to make this a high priority issue and resolved as fast as possible?
