Verizon DNS Propagation Issues

I'm getting really tired of DNS propagation issues... especially with Verizon. I'm working on another website and I changed the nameservers and it's been a day and Verizon still hasn't updated their DNS cache. As a result, if I try to visit my site through Verizon's DNS I get errors, but if I use Google's DNS (8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4) everything is working fine. To add to my annoyance, Verizon does not disclose when or how often they refresh their DNS cache, so it could be anywhere from a few minutes from now until days later. The website is for a large group of people, so I don't want to release it until this is fixed, as many of the viewers might have Verizon and thus would be redirected to a bad page. Then again, I really want to release the site ASAP as I have people waiting for its deployment. Argh.
