TDS Telecom

Today, I filed a complaint with the FCC against my telephone company, tds telecom.

Two months ago, TDS started charging what they call a "Two party Processing" fee in the amount of $2.90 if you pay your telephone bill with your telephone!

You won't be charged this fee if you pay by credit or debit card on their web site, and you won't be charged this fee if you pay by check via postal mail.

I WON"T pay on their website. The last time we did that, we were overcharged a month's billing... what crooks!
