Effective January 1st, 2018 the amount of the Federal Universal Service Charge (FUSC) appearing on your bill each month will increase as a result of an increase in the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) universal service fund contribution factor from 18.8% to 19.5%.  The Federal Universal Service Fund program is designed to keep local telephone service rates affordable for all customers, in all areas of the United States.  Any complaints regarding the monthly Federal Universal Service Charge (FUSC) should be filed directly with the FCC.

As a result of its review of the Oregon Residential Service Protection Fund, the Public Utility Commission of Oregon (PUC) approved a decrease in the RSPF surcharge from $0.07 to $0.06 per access line per month on all end user business, residential and wireless access services.
