I don’t think anyone in America was ever under the illusion that their network operator was out to make life as comfortable as possible for its subscribers. Simply put, the plans are some of the least competitive on the planet. And, chief money grabber AT&T is at it again. This time around it’s adding a nominal service charge to ever postpaid account which will result in the company making millions of dollars each month.
The “Monthly Administrative Fee” actually came in to effect on May 1st, and is an extra $0.62 on top of the monthly plan. It may not seem like much to the end user, but, with its postpaid subscriber base being around the 70 million mark, that’s at least $43.4 million each month. Multiply that by 12 and you have a rather substantial profit. The company is probably banking on the fact that it’s really small change to each user.
Are you annoyed by AT&T’s tactics? Or is it fair game?
