Bogus Pricing Dept. – Incumbents Back Off Fees, Why Not Speakeasy? October 1, 2006

Posted by weare1 in frugality, Internet, rant.

>$Speakeasy.net replaced their actual FUSF tax with a line item called “Regulatory Compliance Fee” after the FCC stopped the FUSF fee requirement. This is a bogus way to hide prices, a hidden charge, one which they would not quote to a new customer. SE has been a great ISP for me for the last few years but they are about to lose my business over this stupid issue. They will lose about $86/mo in revenue by defending this bogus $4.16 charge, good business, no, sleazy business.

Shame on Speakeasy for sleazy business practices, shame on the FCC for not protecting consumers. Where are the DA’s for WA and CA? Anyone who wants to form a class action, leave a comment.
