Each wireless customer is subject to federal, state and local taxes that vary by usage and location. In addition, Alltel charges each wireless customer and retains all or a portion of:
A Regulatory and Admin Fee, which helps Alltel recover costs incurred by the company to provide government-mandated services and complete calls to and from other carriers' networks. This fee is set by Alltel and is not a tax required by law.
A Federal Universal Service Fund (USF) fee, which varies based upon a customer's wireless usage, used to offset Alltel contributions to the FCC's USF.
In certain states, a State Universal Service Fund (USF) fee is charged, the amount of which varies by customer usage.
911 fees of up to $3.30
These additional fees may not be taxes or government-required charges and are subject to change.
From the Alltel Terms & Conditions-
We may change these Terms and Conditions, including any change in any charge or fee, or the imposition of a new charge or fee, at any time if we give you notice in advance of the change. If we make a change to these Terms and Conditions that is material and you do not wish to accept such material change, you may terminate your Agreement for the affected Service by giving us notice within thirty (30) days, in which case you will not be subject to an early cancellation fee. You will, however, still be responsible for all charges for Services and Equipment made before you terminated your Agreement for that Service. A material change is ONLY a change that (a) terminates or substantially reduces the availability of a Service for you or (b) results in the increase of any charge by more than ten percent (10%) of the monthly access charge for that Service. Material changes in your Service DO NOT include the increase in, or imposition of: (1) any charge required to be collected by any governmental authority, or (2) any charge permitted to be collected by any governmental authority to recoup our expense for the provision of a service required by that governmental authority
