Re: Verizon is using Sandy as an excuse to force people to FiOS

My grandmother who is on copper (Elizabeth NJ CO) received a note in the mail...

You know, I've heard similar things (even before Sandy) from other people. The one thing they had in common is that they were all elderly. Elderly people are less likely to question the need for a change like this, and probably don't even understand what's involved, or the issues regarding battery backup.

It was from Verizon, not a 3rd party. I know what you mean about third parties. About a year ago I stopped an overeager FiOS salesman that was going door to door from signing her up for a triple play package... she doesn't even have a computer! I have also heard from folks up in Bergen County that Verizon is constantly calling them to switch to the point of it being harassment.
