Default Information of interest to people using California area codes. - 20-01-2016, 20:20

Information about a tax/fee that might apply to you.

The cellular companies in California conspired with their trade association
to increase rates in California by sticking a surcharge on customers that had
previously been paid by the cellular companies.

It is called the MTS-----Mobile Telephone Surcharge.
It came into effect 1/1/2016.

More information on the topic than anyone will want to know:

It will be interesting to see if and how small non-California MVNOs will handle or notice this.
Also, international SIM cards with California phone numbers?

To be seen.
