I am disappoint about the “Regulatory Recovery Fee” has increase each year. It was $10.25 recovery fee in 2/19/2019 and now it show up to $17.75 in 2/1/2020 so I guess this fee will continue to increase next year (2021). No complains about the “Federal & State Taxes” but in case it costing me $14.88 but how can I be happy with another Regulatory Recovery Fee has gone up so much. Mint says that 3GB 4G LTE Data Plan/Year for 180$ but the checkout showing that I have to pay $197.75 with NO TAXES INCLUDE YET. I know am not the only one who pay for this Regulatory Recovery Fee but I know I am not the only one who have question mark about this fee.

It at least gives a full explanation. The leap is due mainly to a new “additional, fixed credit card or debit card padding” which for 12 month plans is $6.
