In context: An extra $0.51 per month, or $6.12 annually, is hardly enough to get your feathers ruffled over but at scale, it generates a lot of additional income for Sprint. Given T-Mobile's recent bid to acquire Sprint, however, it could be a moot point in the near future.
AT&T earlier this year quietly increased the administrative fee charged to most of its wireless customers in the US. The nation's second largest wireless carrier was heavily criticized over the matter although most assumed the move was done to help finance its recent acquisition of Time Warner.
