Consumer Reports Endorses Rep. Eshoo’s TRUE Fees Act

Consumer Reports is pleased to support the “TRUE Fees Act” introduced by Representative Eshoo. This legislation is simple, straightforward, and effective. It would address the out-of-control fees problem in the telecommunications marketplace by requiring service providers to advertise the total price of a service that includes all fees comprising the monthly service charge for services rendered.
