Verison DSL Availability?

Post by Arnie Goet » Thu, 27 Nov 2003 04:35:21


We moved from one town to another (about 15 miles) and are trying to move our
Verizon DSL service to the new address with a new telephone number. We placed
the order when we got the new phone number but Verizon says it takes 4 - 8
working days for them to check out the line. According to DSLreports we are 3600
feet from the CO which is DSL enabled.

We don't understand why this takes so long. When we punch in the number on the
Verizon web site, it says DSL not available. By doing a reverse lookup, we were
able to determine the telephone numbers of adjacent houses and across the
street. All of the telephone numbers show the DSL is available.

Does anybody know what process (es) have to take place before Verizon says our
new telephone is "DSL Available"?

Verizon is one big fat blob that does things as it does them. Customer
service is suffering at this time of low cost service.

On the above site my main phone number which is 15 miles from the CO it
originates from (known as a foreign exchange in the local CO) supposedly
"prequalifies".

I would not rely only on the results of this Verizon test, you are best off
verifying with them directly as in speaking or writing to someone. Some
people have reported that even after placing and having an order accepted,
the orders get cancelled without warning or notice because Verizon
determines the line does in fact not "qualify". Only by actually having the
service will you be certain that you qualify.

Here's one for you:
I live in a house that's got a "granny" unit connected to the front of the
house where my parents live - has one common wall that connects us by one
door. We're 18,000 feet away from the CO and Verizon said my number didn't
qualify for their dsl service. So I gave them my parents phone number and
it did qualify. I'm now connected through their number and getting download
speeds of over 700 with a max of 768 (didn't qualify for the 1.5).

So not only did they say that I was too far away for dsl service, but my
phone number won't work. But another phone number, in the same house, will
qualify.
Go figure!?!?!

It may be accurate for many, but as mole says, you can't be sure until the
service is installed and you are actually using it. Point is you will not
know if the service can be provided or even acceptable until you are using
it, in other words don't burn any bridges based on the initial
qualification. It currently doesn't cost you anything to try Verizon DXL,
so go for it.

When the web site says your phone is not qualified, they will not even make
an attempt.

After initially saying my line was qualified and sending me a modem, they
first delaying the activation date about 6 weeks, and then cancelled it
altogether.

They have also been known to set up the service and it turns out to be a
poor connection and subsequently it is cancelled... all at no cost to the
DXL consumer.

I says DSL not available. But the guy next door has DSL. Why?

Dave the point is that YMMV. The results for my number one line were
incorrect, period and still are. I have to have a second local line despite
the fact Verizon's site's results are wrong. Nobody should base
qualifications on the test at the Verizon site unless and until they have a
functional Verizon service.

I don't doubt that it was accurate for you or parents or clients, it was
inaccurate for me and mine.

Based on my experience, these prequalifying site tests are rubbish. That
goes for any site. The proof is in the connection and the ISP. You be the
judge.

mole:

You are right - YMMV.

The question is what percentage of queries are correct and what percentage are false.

I'd like to think the preponderance of those who test their number get correct results.

Hay Lippie, long time no flame. I haven't had Verizon on Lie for over two
months. since they disconnected me for posting the truth about there
deceptive business practices in there so called "news" group. If you were
honest you would admit it is one big infomercial and apology for bad
service. You may tell them Earl Camembert said so.

I do not have to figure. They have a data base that is not perfect. Ask how
far you and your "granny" are form the CO. Record the call, if they do not
say they are recording the call you will have to tell them. Keep records and
catch them in there lies.
