FUSF Surcharge Information

Effective July 1, 2022, the Federal Universal Service Fund (FUSF) surcharge appearing on your bill each month for telephone service will change. This is regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The FCC is set to change the universal service fund contribution factor from 23.8% to 33.0%.

Over time this rate may go down as it is evaluated every quarter of the year. This surcharge allows telecommunication services to be affordable for all. It provides discounts to schools, those living in rural areas, and high cost areas. If you have any questions regarding this notice, please contact our office.
