WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- BellSouth Corp. (Charts), the No. 3 U.S. local telephone company, on Friday said it will immediately drop a $2.97 monthly fee for its high-speed Internet service after U.S. communications regulators threatened to question the charge.TFM has been a BellSouth high speed customer since last April.
Most customers would see the change on their bills within a week, but it could take up to six weeks to implement, the company said. It added that customers charged the fee dating back to Aug. 16 would receive a credit.
The Federal Communications Commission was poised to send a letter questioning the fee that replaced a surcharge for a government program that ended this month, a source familiar with the matter said earlier on Friday.
Now how do I celebrate with that $2.97? Feel free to leave your suggestions in my comments section.
