There are a bunch of IXPs around who have been announcing /48s for a some
while.   From a cursory glance around, it looks like Verizon is unreachable
from these at least AS2128, which announces a single /48.  This would seem
to support your sales person's claim.

It will be interesting to see how long this policy lasts - or at least it
will be interesting to see at what stage carriers decide that the loss in
sales revenues hurts more than the cost of carrying /48s from PI delegatin
blocks.
