    Nope, have the brochure in my hand and they absolutely positively claim
    express service in those cities, as I said in the original post, it was a
    LIE (probably to get people to buy their service), It was just sort of
    disappointing to actually be there, looking at the brochure, and it didn't
    work.
    Maybe I can use this brochure with the map/claims of express service to sue
    verizon, or at the least, get out of my contract. Seems to me that if a sale
    is based on printed lies it should be invalid.
