Touch Tone Fee

Bell Canada introduced touch tone in the 1970s and added a charge on everyone's phone bill to cover the cost of the upgrades. Here we are, forty years later, and the fee is still on everyone's phone bill. Apparently the charge pays for "other" upgrades now. Yeah, it's more like an upgrade to their profits. Just a small example of why monopolies are bad.
