What's this? An anonymous tipster gave us this insider tip regarding an increase to Verizon's Activation/Upgrade fee. It looks like Big Red decided to increase these fees to $40. Previously, the activation fee was $35 and the upgrade fee was $30. Now they have achieved parity at this higher level.
What do you think? While the charge is small, it seems like Verizon knows how to work those fees to eke out extra dough from everyone. Maybe they are preemptively dealing with whatever perceived losses they might have regarding Title II classification coming down the pike from the FCC. Or... the bean counters just felt like having another fee increase... Share your thoughts.
