We Hear: Verizon Doesn't Have Coverage in Location Featured in
"Answering The Call" Super Bowl Spot

By Erik Oster

Verizon went the emotional route with its 60-second "Answering The
Call" spot from McCann New York in Super Bowl 52. The ad featured
first responders to a series of natural disasters across the
country. Implicating the network's role in facilitating such
communication is the line "They answer the call. Our job is to make
sure they can get it" near the conclusion of the ad. Among the first
responders pictured is a member [of the] Quincy, Illinois' fire
department.

The problem? It appears Verizon's network doesn't offer coverage in
Quincy or the surrounding area.

Verizon does offer cell service in Quincy IL but the problem is
quality of service.  It appears that the quality is poor according to
users reports on Facebook. See a discussion of user problems and
