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.
