Land Line and Internet.
In order to have internet service, I have to have a land line. There is only one provider of internet services here, so I have to get my land line through them. They can charge what they want as a result, and the service can be as terrible and unreliable as they feel like letting it be. It's below marginal but it's all I can get.
LAND LINE AND INTERNET SERVICE 59.99
TOTAL SERVICES 59.99
SURCHARGES AND OTHER FEES
ACCESS CHARGE PER FCC ORDER 6.50
ACCESS RECOVERY CHARGE 1.50
911 SERVICE 1.50
FEDERAL UNIVERSAL SERVICE FEE 1.26
GA UNIVERSAL ACCESS FUND .44
DEREGULATED ADMINISTRATION FEE 2.79
TOTAL SURCHARGES AND OTHER FEES 13.99
FEDERAL TAX .28
STATE TAX .71
COUNTY TAX .53
TOTAL TAXES 1.52
TOTAL CHARGES 75.50
Approximately 20% of my total bill each month is federal, state or county tax. They can call it surcharges or fees all they want. It's taxes.
