Re: DSL - ATM overhead

Because although the "letter" is already in an envelope (IP encapsulated), AT&T decides they want to stuff it into another package, a package they will also remove before delivering, and charge you for the weight of your letter + their packaging.

The USPS charges you for the weight of the letter (and envelope) as received and delivered, not the weight of the letter (and envelope) plus the weight of whatever they feel like cramming it in.

More specifically USPS charges for the item tendered for shipment as is, not the % share of the pallet/tub/bag, ect they will combine others with. Would if like if USPS charged 44 cents for the letter the $.00000795 for the Bin the letter will be transported in.
