FUSC Surcharge Factor Increase

Effective January 1, 2011, the amount of the Federal Universal Service Charge (FUSC) appearing on your bill each month will increase every quarter as a result of an increase in the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) universal service fund contribution factor.

The current FUSC charge is 20.1 %

The federal universal service fund program is designed to keep local service rates affordable for all customers, in all areas of the United States.
