AT&T, Sprint Boost Customer Fees

AT&T Inc. and Sprint Corp. have recently raised the administrative fees they charge customers, moves that will bring in hundreds of millions of dollars in additional revenue for the companies. AT&T, the second-largest U.S. carrier by subscribers, has more than doubled the administrative fee it tacks on to the bottom of many wireless customers’ bills. The monthly fee, which affects most noncorporate wireless plans excluding prepaid service, recently hit $1.99, up from $1.26 earlier this year and 76 cents in 2017.
