Re: 61 cents??
I suspect It isn't about the 61 cents for most people. Many of them probably want out because of a degradation of service in their area. This new fee just gives them that option. And, honestly, I don't see anything wrong with it. The carriers can screw with how well their service works, and customers have no recourse, so I have no problems with customers who feel they're being ripped off using a technicality to get out of their contracts. Because, if the situation was reversed, you can bet that the carrier would use any technicality they could find to stick it to customers.
I think it's an advertising thing. They don't want to have to raise the rates in their ads. Although I still maintain that these practices should be investigated by the FTC as false advertising. After all, these aren't government-mandated fees; they're hidden price increases that should be included in the advertised price.
