I had a little revelation last night when I was comparing my families cell phone bill on AT&T with my parents Verizon bill. I have become so desensitized to AT&T charging me almost $10 in taxes and surcharges PER LINE, and increasingly raising the “surcharges”, that I could not imagine anything else. It turns out that Verizon has only about $3 per line in surcharges on a shared data plan. While AT&T & Verizon plans might be comparable this is one little detail AT&T likes to sweep under the rug.
With that said I thought I would ask all of you how much you are paying in taxes, surcharges, recovery fees, etc on your carrier. Report back in the comments with your carrier/country and how much you are paying per line.
