" .We are generally pleased with the telephone service
provides. There haven't been any major phone service outages since we began using them, only a few" minor problems over the years.
is offering their customers the option to upgrade their wire connections to fiber optics at no charge to the customer. All it takes is for a technician to come out to the house and install a connection box to connect the existing in-house circuit with
's fiber optic lines. This will result in improved quality since it would replace wires with fiber optic cables. I do have one complaint about
. This is in regards to the "Operator" key on the telephone. Many years ago, you could easily and conveniently contact the telephone company simply by pressing the "Operator" key on the keyboard. This is no longer true. There is no live person to talk to when you press the operator key. This may not seem to be an important issue in today's world of cell phones, but in our situation and I'm sure in other households across the country, it is an important service that is lacking in our current phone service. I remember when you could get many services simply by talking with the operator. Now a live operator that you can talk to doesn’t exist. For a household that has persons that are not technically knowledgeable, it would help out greatly and add peace of mind to know that you could talk with a live person. I remember contacting
about this issue. They send out an email asking the customer to complete a survey concerning how they were treated and if the issue was resolved. I remember taking the survey and I said the issue was not resolved. One of the questions in the survey was worded something like "Tell us how we can improve the rating you gave us in the survey". I wrote that you should answer my question as to why there is no live person when you press the "Operator" key.
never responded to my question in their survey.

"I dislike that the programs they show you on television are not worth the money you pay for the service; not even close. I don't have any other options in my area. I am at their" mercy and I think they know that, so that is why they don't give you good programs. For what you get, the price is F. I am not satisfied with them for sure.

's digital cable was great and worked almost always. The internet was fast and I had no problems. The phone (a land line) - I added only because it came" with a bundle package. The person who had the assigned phone number before me must have had his service cancelled for lack of payment because there were so many creditors calling that number - at all hours of the day and night - that I had to turn the ringer on the phone OFF and never use it for incoming calls again. The real problem I had with
came - not surprisingly - when I cancelled their services. I simply got a better deal - a WAY better deal - from FIOS. I now get the same services - PLUS an international soccer package - for $70 less each month. When I called
to cancel and told them it was because of price, they offered to return my price to my original price of approximately $153 per month. That would have been great if they would have offered it BEFORE I had FIOS installed. And if they can afford to offer those services at that price, maybe they should do so instead of ripping off customers by hiking their prices constantly. The worst was the equipment return process. There is no
office near me. And - again not surprisingly - they don't have their offices stay open very late in the evenings. So returning the
equipment in person was going to be inconvenient. Luckily, when I cancelled, the customer service rep. offered to send me a prepaid postage box for me to return the equipment. Something told me not to do it - but I did...The rep. told me to return the equipment within 30 days. The box came quickly. I packed up my stuff. I sent it all back to
. I even got out my own bubble wrap and packaged everything up really safely to ensure no damage (since the box they sent did not have adequate padding - and was already somewhat crushed at the time it arrived to my house). Within a few days, I got a bill from
that included charges for over $500 of equipment - despite being told that I had 30 days to return the equipment. I called
to complain - and after going through a multitude of levels of automated menus - was finally able to talk to a real, live person. She said that
automatically charged my credit card for the full fees of the last month of service and would issue me the refund after the equipment is logged in. I immediately (within a couple of days of cancelling services) started getting phone calls from a collection agency that works for
to collect unreturned equipment - again even though the rep said I would have 30 days for return. They call virtually every day. They even started sending text messages. I called
to complain AGAIN. The rep. said that the UPS package just arrived the day before and once the equipment was unpacked and logged in, the calls would stop. A week later, as the calls continued, I called
AGAIN - and was told that the modem was missing from my package (WAS ANYONE FROM
PLANNING TO CONTACT ME TO LET ME KNOW?). I did not think that it was possible for the modem to be missing, but agreed that I would go home and double check. But, inside, I remembered handling it and putting it in the box. I double checked (and saw that the space on top of my laundry cabinet - where the phone modem used to live was indeed empty). The next day, I called
AGAIN to report that I did, in fact, return the phone modem (why would I keep such a thing?). The rep. tells me that he will write a ticket for the serial number of the equipment to be tracked. He assured me someone will contact me regarding this matter within 3 days. I told him that it's important to me to close out my account with
- even if it means I have to pay for the modem - because I want to end my contact with them permanently and have the collector's calls cease. Eight days later - I received a call from the collectors - AGAIN - asking about the equipment. I asked what they know about my equipment tracing request - at which point they told me they don't work for
- they just attempt to collect unreturned equipment. So, I call
YET AGAIN - and basically tell them "Listen - I'm never sending you a modem - because I already sent it. So if you are going to charge me for the modem - do it - and send me my money that you owe me." And that is pretty much how we left it. They are charging me $60 for the telephone modem they claim I did not return. I figure - heck - that's less than they were ripping me off each month when you compare the price with Verizon FIOS. Thank goodness I am out of the
game. And by the way, my FIOS works just as good - and the phone doesn't ring off the hook from collectors.

Do you still need your landline phone?

Home phones are in a period of transition, with traditional landlines being replaced by mobile phones or voice over IP services. But is it really time to ditch your landline, or should you stay connected?

They had a new girl who messed up my whole contract. I had to redo my whole service. They changed a few things and didn't explain it to me properly. I gained a faster internet speed and I got locked into another two year contract. They gave me a $300 visa gift card for being a new customer when I wasn't.

I called

to report the problem. A technician was sent out; however, he reported that there was a problem in our neighborhood with "robotic voice." I called

the next day, and was told that the problem would be resolved "shortly." After several days, still no solution, more phone calls, and eventually a big run-around from other employees trying to tell me the problem might be our phone lines and that I had not been home to answer the phone when they called, etc. I eventually obtained Vonage and finally got telephone service; however, now I am getting the run-around about getting my phone service with

A real "comedy of errors," of their corporate technical system, sending a different technician each time, requiring endless re-explanations of the problem and what prior techs had done, ad infinitum. Each new one didn't even recognize that prior ones had left outside boxes open, baseboard connectors disassembled, connections unconnected, etc. We were left with only one phone working, connected to the Modem. The FIOS techs (2, working together), reported to require 4 to 6 hours to install their dual system, took only 3 1/2 hours to not only install their new Modem and system, but to correctly connect and revive our entire phone system!

The service did not respond promptly. I told them I had someone in the hospital and the phone needed fixed promptly. The work took two days for the phone to be working.

Automated answering system was slow and confusing. Once I reached an attendant, I was transferred several times before reaching the correct operator. Process was long and not very organized.
