My Internet Service Provider bill is a flat rate, which solves a different problem by most carriers of internet, voice, or TV traffic. They have a tendency to list all of these other fees as not part of your core cost, but other fees coming from governments, hardware loans, or other items. These ISPs are now complaining that it’s too difficult to document these fees, but in their brash approach, they claim they should still be able to claim $40 per month, but then bill $55.24 a month without explaining the difference. The FCC continues to push back against these whiners, and I don’t blame them. I want to know what my out-the-door cost is for as much as I can, and that’s how we should always have it.
