What makes you question if this is a legitimate message? They aren't asking you to click any links, aren't threatening to kick you off their service if you don't pay X amount now, etc. Seems to be what it appears, a notification of service disruption.

I already get texts from Verizon about my account (like automatic payment received, etc) so I would’ve expected it to come from that number!

Not uncommon for email blasts (that go to everyone) to come from a different email address than account-specific messages

My apartment building is on Verizon wifi and they also sent us an email like last week about service disruptions, it's legit

Oh man we had issues all week with our Fios, submitted a ticket and everything, and no one let us know this was going in. Grrr.


Difficult_Kitchen815 t1_j73yph4 wrote

Mine just went out for an entire night and I thought I had bumped into the router but then I checked my apartment portal two days later and everyone had been complaining.

The email went out shortly after lol

Didn’t get the message just the crappy service. That explains it.

Same here, would have been nice to know rather than restarting my router and modem about 10 times, swapping out switches to see if that was the issue, and starting to consider swapping out ethernet cables. Grrr.

It's real - they were doing it in Old Town a couple weeks ago. Xfinity too, must be a system upgrade or something, but it was super annoying.

Yes, Xfinity just did this in Baltimore. 2 hours in the middle of the day...while working from home :)

Unplug your phone and put it in the microwave. You’ve been compromised

So reliable that you may “experience disruptions,” but we’re not sure when…what poopsicles

In Baltimore and got it last week. Now my internet is shit. Enjoy!

Maybe it means we're finally getting more widespread 5G Ultrawideband coverage.

I also received this. I also have no idea if it's legit.
