AT&T Slipped an Extra $1.23 Onto Your Wireless Bill, and It Stands to Make a Fortune

Discovered by BTIG Research analyst Walter Piecyk (via Fortune), it seems AT&T’s new strategy to increase revenue is by upping the “administrative” fees tacked onto monthly phone bills from 76 cents to $1.99. While that might not sound like much, when you take into account AT&T’s 64.5 million monthly wireless customers and then multiply that by 12 months a year, you’re suddenly looking at a lot more than a simple chunk of change. – Sam Rutherford, Gizmodo
