Check your inboxes, folks – T-Mobile may have just informed you of an impending regulatory fee increase that’s set to go down August 15th. It’ll go from $1.42 to $1.62. Sounds like chump change on paper. But the real story here is that there may be a clause for you to break your contract free of charge due to the change.
It’s the same story as Verizon’s change, except Verizon said the change wasn’t material. They reportedly offered to pay the cost of the increase ($.03) through the life of that current contract if a customer asks them to in order to avoid having to let folks out of their contracts without them having to pay. We’re not sure what folks on T-Mobile can do about this, but we’re eager to find out.
