The Federal Communications Commission, which regulates telecommunications in the United States has now spoken and taken some concern with Verizon’s $2 convenience fee which, is set to go in effect as of January 15th.

“On behalf of American consumers, we’re concerned about Verizon’s actions and are looking into the matter,”

The FCC, who normally gets hated on for not doing enough for consumers has been going after a lot of carriers as of late so, what -- if anything -- they will do about Verizon's $2 convenience fee is still up in the air. Given other carriers have had such things in place for a while now, it's plausible they will allow it to continue but time will tell.
