In the 20th century, we saw that technology was really about to become an essential part of our lives. A lot of people thought that cell phone bills were going to be cheap when they were first introduced to the public. In all reality, cell phone bills have not gone down and they are continuing to increase every year, in my opinion.
As a cell phone user, I can see why you are concerned about your bill because there is nothing more tiresome as to being unable to communicate with your loved ones and surf the web because your bill is too high. Before we blame the providers, we need to get to the root as to why bills have skyrocketed in the first place.
Fees are being smuggled
I apologize for the choice of words that I have used above, however that is what the major carriers are doing. In my opinion, most carriers are increasing their fees in percentages due to the ignorance of the consumers. In my opinion, I believe that the fees that are being smuggled by the cell phone providers are early termination fees and contract extension fees. I would recommend that you take the last 5 monthly payments and compare them to see if the fees have increased.
Taxes are increasing for the providers
In most countries, the government taxes the cell phone providers. If the government increases the taxes to the major providers, they will increase the taxes for the consumer. I would recommend that you check the tax policies in your state or region to see how you are being charged.
Back in the day, most cell phone carriers offered unlimited data plans to the people. In the early stages of offering unlimited data packages to the consumer, the providers underestimated the amount of data that the public can consume. What did they do as a solution? In most cases, they started capping their data plans, which means consumers will have to pay extra for every time they go over their data plan’s limits.
There are more reasons as to why your bill is high. Those three reasons above are the main causes why cell phone bills are high. I would recommend that you seek help from experts who will share more information on how to lower your bill. I would recommend that you join some cell phone forums to see what other people have done to dramatically lower their bills.
