Re: Why are their government fees?
What you say is one way to look at things. HOWEVER, and yes, I was right in what I said in my other posts, I don't expect them to lump things together to make it one price!
Why? Because the users here want the taxes lumped together as well... and it can't be done. Why? Simple.. advertising / marketing areas over lap. If you put an ad on TV or the Radio and called out a price all inclusive, then it's not going to be the same for my neighboring city who's tax is 1% more than mine.
Also, their phone service is priced at what they say. They are accessed additional fees to provide that service.. In my view, those fees passed on to the company in the part of doing business is NOT the 'true cost' of the service. The service is the service and shouldn't be factored in with what others are making them pay.
NOW, with that said, there ARE some fees that I DO NOT agree with.. VERIZON, can you hear me now? A fee for NOT having long distance? and, the ever so popular, 'do not publish me in any directory' for $2.95 a month.. (On a side note, if you ask me, it's time to do away with "the phone book"...
