AT&T, just ahead merging with DirecTV, has announced that they will be increasing their upgrade/activation fee $45, the highest of all competitors.
AT&T last summer had already increased their upgrade/activation fee from $35 to $40, and only a year later is increasing it by another $5? Where is this trend going?
Comparing the top mobile providers we can see AT&T is definitely on top with charging its customers the most amount of money;
- T-Mobile: FREE
- Sprint: $36
- Verizon: $40
- AT&T: $45
AT&T Next customers which have not been charged activation and upgrade fee’s, will begin getting charged on August 1st going forward at $15 per upgrade. Upgrading before August 1st, will still remain $0 for these customers.
