Wireless providers such as AT&T and others are trying to lower cell phone termination fees, in exchange for ridding of any liability and lawsuits they face.

The current cell phone termination fee is around $175 or $200 if a customer wants out of a contract early. Cell phone companies want to lower these in exchange for being free from all lawsuits.

The hearing set for June 12 will have this as its main topic, as the FCC will weigh in on whether or not they believe a national standard could benefit consumers most in terms of a standard for termination fees.
