count me as the 3rd one. I actually have been thinking of jumping ship and switching to other providers as Teleblend keeps raising their tax&fee every few months. (I personally don't think the government raised the fee every other or few months. Instead, it's their way of making more money).
Just $15.00 a month (after all tax&fee) a year back, it is almost $20 now.
That's a 33% increase but my Teleblend bill increased by only 9% in the same period. (Yes, I know 9% is still much higher than inflation but the bill is still below $20.) Can you look at your breakdown and see why it went up? Our locality did increase the phone taxes (although Teleblend increased their own fees as well).
By the way, I recently called and complained about the ever advancing date on which they charged my credit card. Two years ago, they charged my card 5 days before the service month started. They kept advancing it to the point that by February 2012, I was paying 6 weeks early!
When I called, the guy said something like that "yeah, it's a known bug and I'll put you on a new billing cycle which will fix it for you." I asked why they couldn't fix it for everyone and he said he only knew that he could fix it for people as they called up and complained.
