Don't think for a moment that your getting a deal with our wireless service. We fake the numbers of problems and no service areas just to keep the boss from getting "RIF"ed.(fired)
And most of suffolk will never see FIOS, so don't hold your breath
Verizon will sell off the east suffolk plant to cablevision before they would build out fiber in east suffolk.
Keep your land line and only use it to receive calls and use your cell for calling. Big Savings!!!! Just do the math.

I have my third call into Verizon this year for "no dial tone" at home and it's only March 1st.

Some string and two empty beer cans provide more reliable service.

I'm one of them. And Hank, you are wrong about the cost. My landline phone cost more per month than my cell phone. As nobody's fool said, i got tired of all the taxes and surcharges and fees that added about $30 to my bill.
Good riddance to verizon.

i only have a landline, and it cost me $30 bucks a month. Free long distance too !

How much do people here pay per month ? Dont forget those extra charges for going over your minutes, texting, etc....

I can yell out the window to communicate my desire for beer and smokes. I don't want a phone and my creditors can't find me. Life is good.
