What is the Federal USF charge?

The Federal Universal Service Fund was created by the federal government to make sure that affordable telecommunications service was available to all consumers. This includes customers in high cost, rural communities and low-income customers. The USF fund allows for discounted telecommunications for schools, libraries and rural health-care facilities. All telecommunication providers are required to pay into the fund and the costs can be recovered from customers.
