    That’s like telling Verizon thank you because they’re your phone carrier and you used your phone plan to call 911 after a car accident. Like you really want ME to thank YOU when my family plays hundreds a month to use you as our carrier? Wtf we pay YOU for your service and you’re trying to say you’re the heroes? I’m weak as hell really using this tragedy to try to seem like a good company get Flo from progressive back on.

    Okay, forget who made the video or whatever. I could care less about the phone company.

    This video I has an amazing message. I teared up watching this. Thank you to the EMS and first responders for all that you do.

    Just remember people, this is the same company who throttled California firefighters during the worst wildfire season on record.
    When county officials told Verizon that throttling their "unlimited" plan was directly affecting the fire department's ability to respond to a public emergency, Verizon said that the fire department would have to switch to a more expensive data plan. They refused to even lift the throttling temporarily while that was sorted out.

    Verizon actually transferred them to the billing department to negotiate the new payment structure right there in the middle of a wildfire.

    Verizon said it was a "customer service error". But it happened in December and June as well. And Verizon further admits that they failed to properly communicate the terms and conditions to the fire department when they were selecting their plan and setting everything up.

    They thought they had the power to force people to pay more for essential services. They said they wouldn't use that power for something like this, even though everyone knew (and said) that's exactly what they'd do. Now it's evidence in the lawsuit to overturn the FCC's decision.

    Verizon throttled fire department’s “unlimited” data during Calif. wildfire

    Fire dep't had to pay twice as much to lift throttling during wildfire response.

    Verizon is scum. IMO they helped murder the people that were killed in that fire. Company profits above the lives of people. For the remainder of my life I will have NOTHING to do with this company AND I will fight for Net Neutrality. "Verizon's throttling has everything to do with net neutrality — it shows that the ISPs will act in their economic interests, even at the expense of public safety," Santa Clara County counsel James Williams told Ars Technica on Thursday. "That is exactly what the Trump Administration's repeal of net neutrality allows and encourages."

    Williams' comment echoes the skepticism voiced by the government petitioners.

    "The Commission acted arbitrarily and capriciously in crediting

    industry promises to refrain from harmful practices, notwithstanding

    substantial record evidence showing that [broadband Internet service] providers have abused and will abuse their gatekeeper roles in ways that harm consumers and threaten public safety,"

    No, Verizon is not one the good guys. The good guys don't have an open lawsuit against them by the very first responders they claimed to have helped. Firefighters everywhere had to grit their teeth when they saw this bullshit commercial. If you have Verizon, find another option if you are at all able. This company puts money before the lives of people in emergencies. They can make commercials pretending to be good guys. They can disable comments on these PR videos on the Verizon channel so viewers can't read what they actually did. They can corrupt the FCC. But they can't make you believe they aren't exactly what they show themselves to be through their actions. Don't give your money to them.

    Here's what they did.

    How come they never mention the REAL first responders. The people that sit the desk 24hrs a day and say "9-1-1 where your emergency?" without them all the people in this video never would know about or even make it to the scene.

  8. Grant Gonder

    Downvote this, these are the bastards that cost lives and precious time in California during those wild fires, this is emotional heart tugging bullshit. They don’t care about first responders, Verizon has not changed and will not change.

    Verizon taking credit for first responders arriving on scene is kind of rich. They provide (in some cases) the originating network and (in some cases) LTE data to the public safety agencies. They don't run the 911 system service, the public safety answering point, the 911 call equipment in the answering point, the computer aided dispatch system, the radio consoles, the radio network, the radios in the field units, or the patrol cars, fire engines, and ambulances that the first responders use to get on scene. Stop taking credit for something you barely have any role in.

    I hate that is was Verizon that had to do is since their scummy doings with the fire fighters stuck fighting a wild fire. However, I am very happy to see some more appreciation for first response teams. Everyone loves a doctor, a vet, etc. But I am glad to see us get some recognition as well, no hate to any other service members.

    Nice commercial except the dispatchers are the real first responders. There’s no reason that we should keep getting looked over. Without us the paramedics wouldn’t get to you. Thank a dispatcher.

    I have mixed feelings about this ad. I was super stoked when I first heard the song in the background. The fact that smaller musicians like This Will Destroy You getting their song featured on national t.v. During the Super Bowl is amazing! They’re super talented artists who deserve the recognition they receive. But I didn’t realize Verizon throttled the Firefighter’s data during the California Wildfire and that in turn does prevent patrons from receiving emergency help at one of the most crucial times in their lives. Verizon issue seems like it started with the fault of someone in customer support or even management of a c.s. rep. not setting up the proper plan and going over the terms. There was a lot of back and forth between the two and it seems like Verizon wasn’t using their discretion to override policy. It’s disappointing.

    Piece of shit company, got my entire family to switch off these scumbags for their stunt with the firefighters and they have the audacity to do it this now lol. Pathetic sad sacks of shit. Spreading this hypocrisy like you pussies helped spread the wildfire by throttling their signals, cocksuckers.

    This is the short version of this commercial, they left out the best part:
    Kolin Kapernick:" Coach, I helped too! I was down on one knee protesting these white devils trying to save ya in the name of social injustice."
