Reminder: Overage Charges Increasing


About a month ago David reported that overage charges were going to increase come September 1st, and well…that is tomorrow.  Treat this as a friendly reminder to save yourself a bunch of trouble, and charges, by changing your plan if you think (can you really plan this?) you will be using more than your allotted minutes.  Chances are, you will be fine, but if you have gone over on your minutes a number of times before, beware!  Just as a nice summary of whats changing, here you go:

  • FlexPay and Business/Government specific rate plans are not impacted by this change.
  • Overage for Single Line rate plans under $59.99 will increase to $0.45. All other Single Line rate plans will increase to $0.40.
  • Overage for pooling rate plans under $89.99 will increase to $0.45. All other pooling rate plans will increase to $0.40
  • The average increase for customers who have usage charges is expected to be $3.34. Certain customers affected by this rate change will be notified via direct mail beginning July 27 and will be able to cancel their contracts without incurring Early Termination Fees.

If you are a minute abuser, or if you have your own opinion on this change, let it all out in the comments!
