First of all, you need to know the difference between a service and a fee. A fee is something like the Federal Universal Service Fee, where the government assesses a fee to Verizon to subsidize rural netowrk deployment. Since there is no such thing as taxing a company (you can only tax a person), Verizon can either have its customers, employees, or shareholders pay that tax. Right or wrong, usually it's the customers.

A service is something Verizon or another company, provides for a cost, such as voice, data, texting, etc. In this case $12.99 for a few optional services that otherwise would be more expensive isn't a bad deal at all.
