Federal Universal Service Fund

For the 3rd Quarter of 2024, the Federal Universal Service Charge (FUSC) contribution factor will increase from 32.8% to 34.4% beginning July 1, 2024. This will result in an increase of the FUSC charge that appears on your monthly telephone bill. The factor is applied to services designated as interstate by the FCC and changes from time-to-time based on the needs of the federal universal service fund.

Barry County Services Company is proud to announce the USDA award of a 50/50 Grant/Loan through their ReConnect program to expand Broadband Internet in Barry County.

An application was submitted by Barry County Services Company for eligible areas based on criteria provided by the USDA. The ReConnect Program matches Barry County Services’ capital investment to provide expansion of fiber-to-the-home for the eligible areas.
Throughout the next five years, Barry County Services Company will use the ReConnect program to deploy a fiber-to-the-home broadband network. The broadband project will bring service to eligible unserved or underserved areas in the following townships and villages: Irving , Carlton, Woodland, Castleton, Hastings, Rutland, Yankee Springs, Hope, Baltimore and Maple Grove.
More than 1,500 additional rural households, farms and businesses in Barry County will have access to high speed broadband internet services that were previously unserved or underserved with the deployment of 175 miles of fiber optic cable.
Barry County Services is the parent company for MEI Telecom and Barry County Telephone Company serving Barry County for over 100 years. We are very excited about this partnership with the USDA RUS and the opportunity to expand services to additional residents and businesses of Barry County!
