False Advertising by Verizon!

On January 17, 2015, I logged onto MyVerizon and looked at the Special Deals web page. The Verizon FiOS Quantum Gateway was advertised at the sale price of $99.99. I clicked on Learn More and then Order Now to put the Quantum Gateway in my shopping; however, the price was $149.99, not the advertised special.

I then started a chat session and had to wait approximately 20 minutes to reach a Verizon agent. I explained the situation to him, including copying and pasting the special offer from your website:

Upgrade to the newest, most powerful FiOS Quantum Gateway Router

More wireless signal strength delivers the fastest speed ever

– up to 800 Mbps and furthest reach – up to 325 feet*

$149.99 Special Price: $99.99 only until Jan 17

The Verizon chat agent told me that the special price of $99.99 was not available to me! How could that be the case, when I was logged into my account and looking directly at the Special Deals on MyVerizon?

I then tried to call Verizon on the phone, using the number that was shown on MyVerizon. I was on hold for 20 minutes without ever speaking to anyone. I gave up at that point since it was around 11:30 p.m.

Sorry you are having difficulty. An agent with access to your account will reach out to you directly by email, private message in the Forums and/or the billing telephone number on your Verizon account for more information or to help you resolve your issue. Please remember to check your spam/junk folder if you do not hear from an agent.

It was on sale to 01/16 then it went back to full price,

Actually the price has increased it is now $199 plus 9.99 shipping and taxes. Rental fee option also increased a few dollars.

As copied from the Verizon website Special Price: $99.99 only until Jan 17, not Jan. 16!

They are still doing the false advertising. I received an e-mail from Verizon (Exclusive offer just for you) stating that the Quantum Gateway Router is $100 off, and I can get it for $99.99. I also received a postal mailer from them with the SAME offer. When I go on-line to the link, it says $199.99. I call Verizon and they say that is only for certain people who have lower speed internet service and I would need to sign up for the faster internet, but I already have it, so the offer does not apply to me.Are you kidding me?? She also said that everyone gets the mailers, but the offer only applies to certain people. Now that is pure false advertising.

There isnt any famous small print that companies put on deals all the time?

Inappropriate FiOS TV ad

This is the last time your account was accessed.

Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type.

While thismay not be a specific programming issue, it is about a specificFiOS tv ad. I find the current ad of the young girl,who looks to be all of about 10 years old, floating on a raft in a pool watching what appears to be a French language romance film wildly inappropriate – not for the content so much as for the choice of such a young CHILD made up to look so precociouswith an attempt at seductive mood music in the background. If this were a girl in her late teens or a young woman being cannon-balled by an apparentsibling, it would benearly funny. In these days of all the sexual harassment and abuse allegations FINALLY making an impact, this is clearly well over a tasteful and appropriate edge. And, NOTE TO AD AGENCY, I had to see it a few times to figure out what it was advertising – I thought it was for cookies. But because I record much of my programming, I blitz through most ads. This one, though, is in such a bad taste, I had to speak.

I cannot comment on the appropriateness of this commercial. However Ive been trying to figure out what the music used in the commercial is and have not found it. If anybody knows could you please reply to this post. Thank you

Have looked everywhere for this music from FiOS Commercial of girl relaxing in the pool eating cookies and watching French film.

Oh and Im not qualified to judge appropriateness.

Im looking for the song too. No comment on the appropriateness of the ad content.

I would likeVerizon managementto review a Fios Quantum TV ad where a pre-pubescent girl is fetishized with red nail polish, red lipstick, Lolita type sunglasses, and a bikini, to look as though shes twenty-five. The child is barely ten years old. Do you believe that masquerading a pre-pubscent child in the trappings of adulthood to market a product is okay?

In this moment of cultural awareness, WOMEN are speaking out about being preyed upon sexually and Verizon managements approval of the overt-sexualization of this child must be understood for what it is bait.When a young girl is fetishized as a means tosignifyDESIRE it is offensive.

Your ad has struck such a negative chord in me, that every time I see it, I become angrier.

Women do not want to see their children objectified in advertising.

Verizon (Fios Quantum) does a disservice to our intelligence by continuing to run this ad.

Trying to find out the tune in commercial too. It almost sounds like Velvet Underground or something… Anyone w info please inform

The current FIOS ad depicting a young girl as an object of sexual desire is repulsive on its merits, and doubly so given the current social climate. Objectifying a prepubescent girl for the sole purpose of promoting your products is blatant exploitation. The national conversation concerning the behavior of Roy Moore should have been enough for your executives to reject this ad campaign as tasteless and inappropriate. We are FIOS customers and are very disturbed by your choice of subject material.

No we arent. Shes a girl in a swimsuit in a pool. I came to look for the song.

You have got to be kidding, I see a young girl floating around in a pool and dont see anything wrong with it and you see something sexual lolololol. So I guess every young girl around a swimming pool with a swim suit on is wrong in your eyes? This thread is unreal and just plain stupid.

I have to say both my husband and I looked at each other after the commercial regarding fios with the young girl in pool and said what was that about? What r you trying to sell?? Very inappropriate especially in todays times. We are both retirees and are quite surprised at Verizons lack of taste in that commercial. Please respond.

Join the conversation about false advertising and deceptive marketing.

An industry self-regulatory body hasreferred Verizon FiOSto the FTC and FCC after the company declined to participate in an inquiry about the veracity of its advertising claims regarding its internet speeds and reliability.

The claims, which were challenged by Comcast, include:

Fastest Most Reliable Internet Available

Only FiOS gives you equal upload and download speeds

PC Magazines 1 For Internet Speed 10 Years Running

in a press release said the referral to the FTC and FCC was procedure when a company refuses to participate in an inquiry.

A Verizon spokesman told that it had an issue with a former NAD official. The spokesman said:

Weve participated in countless NAD matters over the years and have never before encountered a situation requiring the company to decline to participate in this voluntary self-regulatory process. Although we offered to respond to Comcasts frivolous complaint in the NAD process, NAD refused to resolve a conflict of interest caused by their former assistant director who participated on prior Verizon cases now representing Comcast on substantially similar matters. Verizon regrets that NAD was unwilling to address this fundamental unfairness and we will happily demonstrate our performance superiority in a neutral and proper forum.

In response, NAD said its decision speaks for itself.

Comcast and Verizon have been sparring over internet, reliability and speed claims for more than a year. In 2016, the National Advertising Review Board (NARB), an appellate unit of NAD,recommendedthat Verizon modify its 1 claim for FiOS internet and television services after a challenge by Comcast. NARB noted that Verizons advertisements communicated a superiority message regarding internet speed and HD picture quality rather than the message that Verizon customers were more satisfied with those components of Verizons services over competitors. At the time Verizon said it would consider NARBs recommendations.

Meanwhile,Comcasthas been both on the winning and losing side of challenged advertised claims. Last year, NARB, following a Verizon challenge to Comcasts claims that its Xfinity broadband delivers the fastest internet in America and the fastest most reliable in-home WiFi recommended that Comcast discontinue the claims that were based on crowdsourced data. NARB concluded that Comcast and Verizon offer different tiers of service based on prices.

TINA.org reached out Comcast for comment but it has not yet responded.

The National Advertising Division, or NAD, is an investigative unit of the advertising industrys system of self-regulation. It is administered by the Council of Better Business Bureaus. NAD asks advertisers to substantiate or change their claims in advertisements. As part of a voluntary system of self-regulation, however, its recommendations can be ignored by the offending advertisers. In those instances, NAD refers the offender to federal consumer protection agencies.
