FEDERAL UNIVERSAL SERVICE FUND

Beginning July 1, 2022, the Federal Universal Service Charge (FUSC) is increasing from 23.8% to 33.0% on Barry County Telephone Company customers with voice services. This will result in an increase of the FUSC charge that appears on your monthly bill for phone services. According to the FCC, all telecommunications service providers must contribute to the federal Universal Service Fund, which helps people in rural and high-cost areas, and income-eligible consumers, get access to telecommunications services at reasonable rates through programs and initiatives such as the Connect America Fund, Lifeline and the E-rate program for schools and libraries.

Please note that we can now unbundle your phone service if you no longer need your land line, which will reduce your monthly bill and avoid future increases related to phone services.

STATE OF MICHIGAN E911 RATE

Beginning July 1, 2022, the State of Michigan E911 rate is increasing from $.50 to $.65 on Barry County Telephone Company customers with voice services. This will result in an increase of the Michigan 911 charge that appears on your monthly bill for phone services.
