said by DrDrew: dr drew you are usually 100% correct on all your other posts but in this case you are not. ads are sold by third party. in markets like philly or dc where comcast is incumbent provider they do sell ad space for fios but they fios does have some control over the quality of the ad. there is suppose to be a QC process in place but apparently it is not being followed. the timing and loudness of ads is a complete mess.
Ad inserts are handled by a third party. Verizon doesn't have direct control of them.
