Submission + - Verizon justifies $5 fee based on 'systems and IT' costs (networkworld.com)

coondoggie writes: "Let’s say that for whatever reason, you’d rather your telephone number not be published. If you are a Verizon customer, that privacy privilege will cost you $5 a month. And how does Verizon justify such a significant fee for such an insignificant service? “The cost charged to offer unlisted phone numbers is chiefly systems and IT based,” a media relations spokesman for the company tells Network World. (Asking the same question of online customer service elicited a predictably unenlightening response.) Sixty dollars a year to keep an unpublished number unpublished? Does that seem plausible?"
