You Won’t Be Able To Avoid T-Mobile’s New $35 Activation Fee
T-Mobile is going to bring a new $35 activation fee for all new customers on Nov 15, 2022.
T-Mobile’s new $35 activation fee will be a forced charge for all new customers that want to use its network. This means that people who bought their phone from T-Mobile before the date will not have to pay this fee.
T-Mobile has been struggling with declining revenue and high debt, which has led the company to make these changes in order to cut costs and increase revenue.
T-Mobile is not the first company to charge an activation fee. A few months ago, AT&T announced that they are going to charge a $15 activation fee on devices purchased on or after February 1, 2020.
There are some people who are not happy with T-Mobile’s decision and have threatened to cancel their service rather than pay the new fee.
The company says it needs the money to cover the cost of implementing the Advanced Service Credit (ASC) and Universal Service Charge (USC) changes mandated by FCC rules in 2015.
The company says that it has been working hard for years to make its network better and more affordable, but these changes are just too expensive for them. to make without charging customers more.”After a long and hard-fought battle with the FCC, we’ve just been forced to turn off our cell service for good,” the company said in a statement. “This should be a wake-up call for all of us about what’s at stake.”The move comes as companies like T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T have continued to raise their prices.
