Robert had a simple enough question: Is Verizon's FiOS service available in Palm Springs?
Yet when he called the company, a service rep was unable to provide a definitive answer, nor could she say when FiOS might arrive in the city.
That alone should serve as a wake-up call for all companies. It's foolish to staff your service centers with people who have no clue about the products or services they're representing.
It's disrespectful to customers and a pathetic reflection of the company's quality standards.
I contacted Verizon myself to get some answers to to Robert's questions. What did I learn? Check out today's Ask Laz video.
