System Access Fee + 911 Fee
When looking at my Aliant/Bell bill I noticed something _VERY_ interesting.
Notice the "System Access Fee, 911 Fee" on the same line? Mixing CRTC/Federally regulated costs with another fee decided completely by the Telecommunications company on the same line. It seems to be done only for deceiving purposes - that is, someone who quickly looks at their bill could think that 911 is $9.50 instead of two small charges both less then a dollar. Aliant/Bell before broke apart the SAF very far from each 911 fee (in Nova Scotia we have 2 fees, one which pays for Emergency Response Staff, the other which pays for the telecommunications company the ability to bring the 911 service)
Is this a trend other telecommunication providers will try? Is this going to be a legal thing?
