Your phone serivce is $2.68 more per month

This will sound like a rant but it is not. I looked at my Verizon bill this morning and it was $3.00 higher. I am being charged $2.68 for the following reason: “Please note that these are Verizon Wireless charges, not taxes. These charges, and what’s included, are subject to change from time to time.” That is it folks. They added $.32 for government tax and Shazam your bill is $3.00 more. I know some will roll their eyes over $3.00 but the reason they get away doing things like this is no one complains. The cable companies have done it for years and now are reaping the rewards as many are cutting the cord to cable systems. Verizon has 86.5 million customers. If they charge everyone an additional $2.68 they will profit 232 million dollars per month. You read that correctly, they will roughly make an additional 3 billion dollars on the backs of 86.5 million people. This happens with big companies because we let it happen. I have been with Verizon for 13 years and I am ready to drop their service over $2.68 and any company that thinks they can do this so arrogantly without warning. Prices for wireless service are way too high, just like in the 70’s when Ma Bell was charging ridiculous prices for a landline phone call. Give me your take on companies driving up prices without any notice at all?
