ABC Radio: Campaign to stop fees for hard copies of bills and official statements
MICHAEL BRISSENDEN: Increasingly people are relying on emails and other electronic forms of communication to pay their bills and receive official statements.
Many companies now charge fees if people want these documents sent to them in hard copy.
It’s far from ideal for the mostly poor and elderly who make up the large percentage of Australians who don’t have access to the internet.
So a number of community groups have now banded together to support a campaign to get corporations to drop these fees.
