Re: [Billing] Leaving FIOS soon

said by VirtualLarry:

The only way that FIOS would be worth it to me, is if it were $60 or less per month. I've already ordered the DSL, so for a few months I'll have both. Once I've convinced myself that the DSL is fine, I'll cancel the FIOS outright.

Edit: I should add - I tried to downsize my services to their "DSL equivalent" service on FIOS, for whatever cheap price they were charging for 3/1 FIOS. They wouldn't let me, said it was for current DSL customers only, and that I would have to be billed on a credit card, they couldn't mail a bill.

So if Verizon wants to be inflexible, they're going to lose a FIOS customer. They harder they squeeze, the more customers fall out of their hands.

What do you plan on doing for TV? When I had TWC and DSL, TWC charged me more for cable alone than I paid for FiOS Triple Play.
FWIW, when my 2 years was up with Verizon, I re-upped and got a $300 gift card, more channels, and more discounts than I had originally.
