This is the rant of a frustrated consumer.
My partner and I pay through the nose for substandard service and unimpressive internet speeds from Time Warner Cable. Service was out during Hurricane Sandy, and after it was restored, so spotty that my partner or myself could not get work done or uploaded with out going to extraordinary, inconvenient and some times expensive lengths. Ok, NYC has come mostly back on line with all our creature comforts, EXCEPT, my internet goes out during every important upload! This loses my partner money, and could damage his reputation as a reliable go to source for video in his industry.
So we call on Verizon, to investigate this FIOS service which our research has indicated is faster, more stable, and a better value for the money charged. Our neighbors and friends who have it, rave on and on. After half a dozen phone calls, a few emails and much back and forth, we discovered that even though half of our block is wired, our side is not. Mind-blowing news, and very disappointing after thinking a solution was in the offing!!
So I say, Verizon; stop torturing me with your commercials on the net, tube and radio! Its bad form, taunting me, with something I want and cannot have. Color me one frustrated woman!
