January 20th is Inauguration Day, and AT&T is making America great again by increasing theÂ fees it charges customers to activate or upgrade their smartphones. Again.
Less than twoÂ weeks after Verizon increased its upgrade fee from $20 to $30, AT&T has confirmed that its upgrade fee and its activation fee will rise from $20 to $25 each. The fees apply to new customers when they activate a smartphone, orÂ to existing customers when they upgrade to a new smartphone. This marks the second time in just nine months that AT&T has increased these fees, seizing the opportunity to follow in theÂ footsteps of its top rival, Verizon, which also just increased its upgradeÂ fee for the second time since last April.
