Oh, Verizon. Will you ever stop breaking our hearts? First it's a $350 ETF for smartphone cancellation, and now you've gone and upped the ante even further for FiOS customers.

Starting this Sunday, the cost of canceling your two-year FiOS contract will jump from $179 to $360. Why? Because they're jerkfaces. Even worse is that if you have to cancel because you're moving to a part of the country without FiOS service, you're still on the hook for the full amount. Oh, and there's no grace period. So at least Verizon's also totally without compassion.


Here's hoping the FCC gets involved again, although who knows how long that process might take. In the meantime, sign up for FiOS today if you were even thinking about it. Or better yet, run like hell in the opposite direction. [Consumerist]
