Re: Shouldn't this be included in the monthly fee you pay?
But that would mean they'd have to advertise higher rates. This way they can say their service costs "Only $29.99 a month.* [tiny print]*Plus various taxes and fees[end tiny print]" instead of saying "Only $65 a month."
No, much better (for them) to be able to advertise the tiny monthly fees. Just like with cell phone companies.
(Seriously, though, there should be a legal requirement to disclose all such fees, the basis by which they are calculated, and the purpose for them.)
