Verizon strike has led to unprecedented outcomes and scrutiny. The recent marketing strategies that Verizon implemented in Boston were branded a lie. Moreover, the union strikers have also been speculated to brace for the worst things to come.

The Huffington Post relayed that Verizon has formerly mentioned of investing $300 Million for the improvement of the Boston line. It would mean that the region's Internet system would be boosted by fiber-optic FiOS. However, contradictory to what the tech firm revealed, there has not been any confirmation that it was fully done.

Verizon told Boston that they were going to be spending about $300 million over 6 years to upgrade the city to FiOS, a fiber-to-the-home service, but according to Verizon's Shammo, the money really isn't being "spent", as noted by the same post.

"So we will get to this. But we are starting to - we will start this mid-year this year for especially the 5G and 4G LTE densification. We will start the Internet capability with the passing homes," Shammo added.

It is clear that Verizon has not rendered full details to the authenticity of its projects. Along that line, with the ongoing strike from the union workers, the days would continue to dim for the tech company, unless both segments are able to fix their differences.

 More report from Game & Guide has revealed that even the union workers children have joined their parents in the picket fence to strengthen their resolve.

Indeed, the eyes of the world are focused on the unfolding outcomes for Verizon. All the more, Verizon needs to address the issues pertaining to their marketing and operations in Boston. Otherwise, Verizon's operations in Boston might be branded as lie and complete hoax. As for the strikers and the union workers, if the fight goes on, it is inevitable but these workforces must brace themselves for the worst things to come.
