Verizon borrows a play from Rogers’s book. Anyone surprised?

The next time I bitch about my cell phone bill going up while my service takes a giant crap, somebody remind me about this guy. Currently, he’s on a 5 GB data plan with Verizon for $60/month. According to Verizon’s website, there’s nothihg nigher. According to most of Verizon’s available resources–at least, those this poor sucker got his hands on, anyway–there’s nothing higher. Thanks to one generous online sales rep, though, he was able to discover he was being lied to. There is another option–he can either continue to be screwed over by his current data plan and rates, or he can pay over 3 times the price point for twice the service.

This sounds vaguely familiar. Gee, I wonder why that is? Verizon, please to be not finding new and creative ways to improve on Rogers’s suckitude. Seriously. I really don’t want to have to assign you your own category over here–I can’t even be a customer of yours. And now, I’m not entirely sure I’d want to.

Have an opinion?
