Administrative Fee

I'm wondering what the Administrative Fee is and why it keeps increasing.In about six months it increased from 79 cents to $1.99. I'm just wondering what is the purpose of the charge and why it will apparently continue to increase. It may seem small to most, but small changes add up in the end. I'm politely asking for someone to help me understand. Thank you in advance.

What it is: The Administrative Fee helps defray certain expenses AT&T incurs, including but not limited to: (a) charges AT&T or its agents pay to interconnect with other carriers to deliver calls from AT&T customers to their customers; and (b) charges associated with cell site rents and maintenance. (see https://www.wireless.att.com/cell-phone-service/additionalcharges/?Source=ESSZ0SSPR00wadsEM&wtExtndS...)

 

It went up because Verizon increased their fee. Both are now $1.99. There's no way to tell what the future will hold.
